They have a water filter and an Onil stove. Thank you!
Update 19 April
Thanks to very generous donations, Juana and Rosaria now both have a brand new thick blanket each to ward off the cold mountain air at night. Thank you for helping these two lovely ladies out!
Juana Par, 75, and her daughter, Rosaria, 28, live alone in a house made of wooden boards. They have no family to support them, and before being added to the Mayan Families elderly feeding program in San Jorge, they supported themselves on the $3.30 that Rosaria earns cleaning onions each week.

Good blankets cost $20.
A fuel efficient Onil Stove, which would dramatically decrease their need for firewood--and therefore the amount that Juana has to carry--costs $160.
A water filter, with the filter cartridges which provide clean water for 1-2 years, costs $50.
