When we first caught up with Melissa and her family in November, they were among the dozens of families living in flimsy shacks on a muddy hillside in the Monseñor Romero slum community of Nuevo Cuscátlan, El Salvador. This year, thanks to Fuller Center for Housing supporters, 90 families are moving into safe and healthy new homes.
Melissa’s family was among the first to apply during the winter and among the first to move into their new home this summer. Dozens more have followed. With your help, we’ll not only complete this community this year, but we will repeat this wonderful success story in Ahuachapan, El Salvador.
Thanks to a generous gift from Dr. Richard Semmler, any donation you make in the waning days of August will be matched dollar for dollar up to $20,000. This will double your gift’s impact and allow us to help more families like Melissa’s in El Salvador, along with families fighting chagas in Bolivia, recovering from earthquake damage in Nepal and picking up the pieces after flooding in Louisiana. Your gift will go to where it can be best used to extend a hand-up to families in need, here in the U.S. and abroad.
