We truly need your help
Thanks to the generous $50,000 gift, our new contractor has resumed construction. El Sauzal Foundation has reallocated funds from several dedicated orphanage accounts. The orphanage staff have implemented every cost-saving measure they can, specifically with food, electricity, gas, and water. We need to maintain fully-trained staff to receive our license.
There are still some fees to obtaining our license of operations that we don’t have an estimate for, including the cost to perfect the title for our land. Erika, our administrator, has worked fervently to determine estimates for these costs but has been denied information by the offices involved. The unknown expenses include:
- Notary fees to appraise our property to perfect the title of land
- Taxes owed for land
- Fee to apply for operating license
We also had several unexpected large expenses, such as the settlement with the former contractor’s employee in January. These have drained our funds so we have no reserves. The amount we receive monthly from you, our donors, is barely enough for the orphanage’s monthly expenses. Our finances are extremely tight!
Currently we need about $15,000 for items we know the cost of. Add to this the unknown expenses. We truly need your financial support and prayers.
