Greetings; For all those who have a heart for the working poor, here is an update on the new dump site. It is miles from the old location and it’s miles of dirt roads which is too far for anyone to walk. It takes more than one hour to get there and those who use to work at the old dump site now have to take shuttles to reach this new dump. Because of the distance many have to eat what they find, not having the comfort of home being close by.
There are from five to three hundred people working at one time. Many, because of the distance, have to bring their children with them. They build small shelters which protect them from the sun as the adults work. Very few live there because of the distances from the city and stores, there are no schools and their children stay in the shelters build by the parents with out much to do!
We here at La Roca, would like to build and establish facilities to open up a daycare and medical care for then. This will also include good clean drinking water and some food and most important schooling while they wait for their parents.
Would you please consider helping us in this great need? At this present time, there is nobody or organization helping because of the great distance. La Roca could be the first to take this challenge to heart and make a difference in many people’s lives. In His Passion, Carlos and Rossy Montoya
