Yanori has been sewing for two years. She really enjoys it and likes that she can still take care of her son while she works. Originally from Santa Barbara, Honduras she moved to the city to try and find work. She lives in a tiny house in a slum of San Pedro Sula and it is more like a room than a house.
She is grateful that she has the opportunity to sew but her greatest fear is the support beams of her little home. She would like to have those replaced. She sent me a blurry photo of one of the beams and it does look pretty sketchy. One of the hardest battles in the slums besides the poverty, trash, open fires, gangs, inclement tropical weather is that there are also a lot of termites. Many of the wood in the slum are weakened by these little pests.
We would like to help Yanori get a better structural support so she can be a little safer in this dangerous living situation. We estimate these beams costing about $150. We have divided this into $25 increments and you can choose to pay $50 or change your quantity and pay more! Thank you so much!
