Did you know that a 2 room home, with a porch and a latrine, can be built for under $5500.00?
It can. Look what the foundation, with God’s blessing, was able to do for the Joseph family:
The above photos were of the home before, and after you all pulled together to help raise enough money for this family of NINETEEN, a new home was built:
The last time we were in Haiti, we met a family that we have called “the family in the woods”. This family of 7 was living literally on the ground. When it rained nobody would sleep because there was not a dry spot to lay. The team was able to put together around $750 dollars while we were still there to get a frame and a roof for this family, which is a HUGE start. We would love to raise the rest of the money ($2500.00) to get the walls put up for this family.
The foundation has been talking about single mother Madam Datilus for over a year now. She was the first home that the God blessed the foundation with enough money to purchase. It took longer because since she was homeless she had no property of her own. We were actually able to purchase a nice home and property for the $5000.00 that was raised. She is still in need of a Latrine, and this can be constructed for about $250.00
There is so much need in Haiti. So many people in need of a safe and secure roof over their heads. Walls to surround them. We have been trying to figure out what we can do to raise interest. What would it take to build homes for people in need in Haiti. Listen to this! (or in your case, read this) IF we could get JUST 150 families to commit to JUST $10.00 a month, we could build THREE homes a YEAR!! Doesn’t this sound awesome!
(Side bar note here—-) I know that we have homeless in the United States also. And I am not heartless, but, I know that there are jobs available…. there is assistance available…… There are no government programs in Haiti to help out families in need. The availability and options are so much grander here..
Let’s take a look at what you do with $10.00 a month. (33 cents a day) Stop at a gas station and buy a soda or a coffee and throw the 33 cents in your ash tray, or lose it in your couch cushion. In one day you can easily spend that $10.00 on a meal at McDonald’s, or bring home 2 gallons of milk. A Netflix subscription…. Would you miss 33 cents a day? Could your family commit to $10.00 a month? I put this request out on Facebook a while back, and I did get one person to commit to $10.00 a month. Only 149 to go!! 🙂 It is so easy to do….
