We are home safe and sound from our awesome Humanitarian Trip. All our projects were completed and houses dedicated.
I have attached a picture of the family receiving the Canadian Concrete Masonry’s house.
Their names are: Sra Licita Loui Shallo, Sr. Molia and they have one child. I cannot tell you how excited they were to receive such a huge gift. They would never, never, dream that they would ever be able to afford a clean, dry new home. The ownership of their home will be overseen by the Samaritan Foundation, and after 5 years of ownership a deed is given to the wife of the family – as the women are more stable than the men. You have no idea how decrepit their previous house was. Very small, dark, no windows – just awful – it truly is a life changing experience for the families.
Our web site www.dominicanjourneys.com is currently being updated.
Planning has started for 2010 – our 5th year anniversary. If you know of anyone that would like to join us – just let me know.
I am more than willing to attend at any meeting or event to give a small presentation on our journeys.
Thank you so much for your very generous donation – many people in the little village of Esperanza (which means Hope) have benefited and will continue to benefit from your generosity.
