The Otoniel family lives a town in Sololá, Guatemala. Luis is married to Virginia, and they have a son, Julio. Luis and Virgina both work full-time (he as a salesman; she as a teacher) so Luis’s mother, Manuela Christina takes care of Julio.
The family learned about Habitat for Humanity Guatemala from a community volunteer and decided to build a new home to have a more spacious and safe space for their family. They were able to build their new home on the same piece of land as their older home, making the entire process much easier.
Now that they are settled, they feel safe and happy in their new space. They are appreciative of the volunteers who came and supported them in their journey to building a new home. “Thank you for the work you did here!” says Manuela Christina.
