Hi Everyone,
On Saturday, Florencia, a member of our Elderly Care Program, passed away in her home with her daughter. Florencia has been bedridden for over a year and received almost all of her food, medication, and other necessities from Mayan Families. When she was still able, Florencia made tortillas and sold them in the street, with her basket in one hand and cane in the other.

She has been living with her daughter who has been unable to find work and now has the responsibility of paying all of the funeral expenses. We would like to help Florencia's daughter to pay for the coffin so that she does not have to suffer debts over her mother's death. A coffin costs $250.

Thank you!
