Pablo's Place

Pablo lives in very rough conditions in a neighborhood outside of Todos Santos. After his stroke 5 years ago, he hasn't been able to work on painting cars. His step sister has interceded his government pay checks and he has no family around. He has lost his speech and mobility in his right hand. 

His survival depends on the charity of good people- my friend, Chanelle, being one. When she took me to see the dirty and old mattress he sleeps on in a room pungent with mice urine, I cried. "If this were my dad or grandpa...I wouldn't stand for it. How can we allow him to live like this?" she asked. 

For a couple of weeks, Chanelle, has called to the local community for help and much has been improved. But, with hurricane season  and sweltering heat around the corner, there is so much more that needs doing. 

This campaign is to improve Pablo's living conditions. Funding will provide materials and labor for: 

  • install adequate and safe electrical system
  • add hot water and plumbing in kitchen 
  • reinforce kitchen beams so they don't collapse
  • cover plywood/particle board of Pablo's room with water resistant material
  • patch up roof holes
  • obtain mosquito netting
  • cement to add 4th wall and roof to move Pablo into a more secure space eventually
  • installation of windows for ventilation

Any level of donation would be helpful. There are so many people who live in such harsh conditions. Our goal is to start with Pablo- help our neighbor have a decent home he feels good and safe in. 

Thank you!
