We just love Rosa Guadelupe.  She is a robust woman who ends up protecting many women in the slums from many of the daily threats they are up against.  However, she is a seriously kind and generous person and always opens her home for anyone who needs a place to sleep for the night.  Granted her house is smaller than my walk-in closet but she always creates space for whomever needs it.  Her heart is so great.  

Guadelupe is the mother of 3, two boys and one daughter.  She also happens to take care of her very ill father who has worked so hard his entire life his body and essentially shut down on him.  He is diabetic and has many other health issues so he lays in bed most days unable to move.  Still when we have visited he will slowly rise up to shake our hand and greet us.  

Guadelupe is trying to teach her sons the value of work and wants to give them an opportunity to do so.  With all of the things that are so obvious that she can use she asked specifically for a weedwacker and lawnmower for her sons to do landscaping.  There are some very nice homes close to the bordo so it is very possible for them to load these items up in a borrowed cart to do some landscaping.  We are just asking for a weekwacker right now so we can make sure these items will be used and not stolen by the gangs.  One never knows what the gangs will decide to take.  We are hoping a weedwacker can be concealed in their home.  We anticipate the weedwacker being $200 so we are splitting this donation up into 8 payments of $25. Her son Alberto is only 14 but he is tall and strong and we think this could definitely be a possibility for him to help contribute to the family's income.
