Tears of Sadness, Tears of Joy

When storms raged outside their ramshackle home in Honduras, 8-year-old Flor and her three siblings would cling to their mother, Lucia, afraid their rickety shelter would fall in on them.

The tiny, one-room shack, made with sticks and tarp remnants, did little to shield Flor and her family from the storms that shook the house with every gust of wind.

“I don’t feel safe here,” Lucia said. “If there’s a big wind the house will blow up, and then where will I go?”

Thanks to you and other loving donors like you, Flor and her family now have a safe place to live. Your gift for housing has turned tears of sadness into tears of joy by answering the prayers of a desperate mother and providing her children the certainty of safe shelter in their new Food For The Poor home.
