Last week, the people of El Milagro Community (Platanillo) in Quezaltepeque, El Salvador, received the deeds to their houses. Love & Hope has been involved in El Milagro since the people there were moved by the government from a different location in 2005. Since that time they have been fighting for the deeds to their houses- seven years!
Ninety families (some with kids in tow) were called up one-by-one to receive their deeds. The mayor of Quezaltepeque and other political figures attended the ceremony.
Rachel was also able to attend and celebrate with the resilient people that all of us at Love & Hope have come to care about so deeply. The people of El Milagro thanked Love & Hope for their support over the last seven years.
