Project Hogar - Help the Kids

I am collecting donations through this website for renovating the little boy's bathroom and hopefully their entire dorm. I will get an estimate today of the cost of this project. I cannot stress enough the importance and urgency of this renovation. More little ones will be living in this dorm as of June, and as the pictures will show, it is in very poor condition. Two of the four toilets are not connected to water and the boys have to pour bucket of water down the toilets to flush them. Currently, they have 9 children living here between the ages of 6 and 13.

They hope to expand the bathroom and have 6 new, flushing toilets, a nice, tiled shower area and new sinks. They also want to redo the boys' bedrooms since the ceiling is leaking and the paint is falling off the walls. The hope is to expand one of these rooms and put in closets. This is all interior renovation and no change will be made to the main structure of the building. The whole place inside and out needs to be repainted as well.

If you feel that you can give, please, please do. I have never felt more strongly about a project. Would you want your son or daughter living in these conditions? These little boys are the newest to Hogar, are the littlest and have the least. I will keep you posted on our estimated financial goal. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
