Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - We just completed the foundation for the Banderas Bay Women's Shelter. Despite the rains we were able to complete the work well under budget. The cost of the excavation and foundation was $336,000 pesos.
This work was financed by $140,000 pesos raised in fund raising events in PV, donations of $10,000 pesos received in Mexico, the equivalent of $150,000 pesos in donations received in the US and $36,000 pesos donated by the board of directors of Vida Reavivida A.C.
We will begin work on raising walls around the 1st week of November and are looking for donations. We need lots of cement blocks, bags of cement mix and bags of mortar mix. Cement blocks run about $50 pesos each. The bags of cement and mortar mix each run about $100 pesos.
We can also use volunteer construction workers. If you are interested and would like to know how you can donate financially or with your time and efforts please contact David Zude at compassionforthefamily(at)yahoo.com.mx or 044-322-103-2451.
