Santiago Home

Santiago Home

The rainy season occurs twice in Guatemala… winter and summer. The winter rains were especially threatening to Jonny Santiago’s home and the 14 members of his family that live there. Many homes are layered on the sides of steep mountain slopes. The Santiago’s home was spared extreme damage, while other were washed away, along with one women’s life. Neighbors First, Inc. is providing the necessary funds to build a concrete retaining wall to stabilize the soils before the summer rains start. Thanks to many NFI supporters, and NFI’s project manager, Roberto, this urgent need is being met.
