Our project to rebuild 100 homes has opened a window into the challenges and circumstances faced by neighbors with health conditions.
That is the case of a residentfrom the community of Pasto Viejo in Humacao who will benefit from this initiative. A middle-aged woman with several vascular brain health conditions, she is currently bedridden and depending on medical equipment, consequently resulting in morbid obesity. The contractor's plans include building a room adapted to her multiple conditions ather parents' house. This room will also have a bathroom with accessible equipment adapted to a person with disabilities. The structure will be built in wood and cement. The contractor assigned to this restoration project is in the process of quoting the materials and labor.
Cases like this one are a constant reminder of the relevance of adequate housing conditions for the health of the most vulnarable residents of our communities. We thank each one of our donors for making it possible for these neighbors to improve their quality of life.
On a celebratory note, we produced a short video to explain our project and to feature some of our success stories. It's in Spanish, but we know that the beaming faces of neighbors with restored homes is a message that can be understood across any cultural or language barrier. Here's the link to the video:Over 100 Homes Restored in Punta Santiago.
