Emma Lerma Fuentes
Emma is a very valuable asset for Eli House! She crosses the border every week and goes to the post office, picking up packages and letters that sponsors have sent and then mails outgoing thank you cards. Before teams come to stay at our dorms, she cleans them and helps make the beds as well. In addition, whenever we have a medical or dental clinic, she serves as an interpreter. We appreciate Emma and the role she plays at Eli House so much!
