Home Repairs – Update 2…

I just wanted to take a moment to CELEBRATE the families we’ve been able to come alongside… since the hurricane & subsequent flooding! 🙂

In October we began purchasing all the available construction materials we could find  – so we could repair homes. We finished what we could  – BUT –  the venders ran out of supplies. The roads were cut and their supply trucks were unable to come and replenish.

So construction had to stop mid-November and didn’t resume until late December.  We rented a dozen homes for those families who needed immediate shelter. Unfortunately there’s not a lot of safe homes for rent – as many of them were also effected by the storms.

BUT since December–  we’ve been chipping away on several projects.

On November 9th we wrote a blog outlining our first set of construction repairs: https://molehaiti.org/2016/11/09/home-repairs-update-1/

This is so disheartening… we started fixing her home the 2nd week of November. Because of the rain – it was hard to get a good  “after picture”.  Staff had to work quickly in-between bouts of pouring rain just to get the home completed.

We thought we would have plenty of time to get the after pic… but none of us were expecting the intense November 16th Flooding… which did WAY MORE damage to the Mole than the Hurricane.

This flooding washed out the foundation under this home – and many others for that matter.  The government told us that we cannot rebuild on that property… and the family doesn’t want to leave it.
