Project Completed! Kids can come!

Our disaster relief shelter is done!


We finished this simple but beautiful eco-building.  This is thanks to the collaboration between Suzanne from PuraVida Atitaln (one of the most experienced ECO-BRICK builders by far), young carpentry students from the local association, Carpinteros de Alotenango, our own team from LWH, and the help of endless children from the disaster relief site. 
This eco-construction is made out of a wooden frame filled with more than 5,000 ECO-BRICKS, glass windows and a tin roof. It represents the movement in fighting against plastic pollution, and being more conscious about the welfare of our earth. Children from the refugee camp are now able to use this facility as a art/communal room to play, paint, learn how to play music instruments, or simply read a book. 
Next week, the LWH Team is pleased to participate in the opening-event to hand-over the Eco-Art-Aula to the School of Alotenango. This was all done with your help, your donations, and your belief in us. Thank YOU for allowing LWH to support various communities in Guatemala!
