Alfredo, Maria and their 4 daughters lived in a Swiss relief house.  The home had seriously deteriorated and needed to be replaced.  In the event of a major earthquake, the house would surely collapse.  One day, while out in Buena Vista visiting another family, we saw their house and stopped by see what kind of condition it was in.  We met their oldest daughter, Marisol, who was 15 and not going to school.  She finished the 6th grade but did not have the funds to go on.  We helped her with supplies and uniforms to go to middle school.  Through this, we got to know the family a little better.  

Their new house is safer and more secure.  They are thankful that they no longer have to fear what will happen when another earthquake hits.  Just knowing that their house will not fall in gives them great peace of mind.
