House 4 was for a young couple named Victor and Siodani. This sweet couple has two young girls. A 1 year old named Baili and a 2 year old named Maraini. When we first visited them in April 2015 they were living in the same home with Altagrassa and Alexander and they had split the home in the middle. As you can see from the pictures, this home was very unsafe and the roof leaked water into the home each time it rained. Siodani was gone when we visited in April as she was looking for medical help for Baili who was very sick at the time. We worked with the local pastor to find them land close to Siodani's mother and were able to start construction on their new home early October. We had a team of 13 people who flew down to San Cristobal the end of October 2015 to finish the home. We are happy to report that the family moved in October 19th 2015. This made such an impact for this family and they are so grateful for this change in their lives.
We want to thank all those listed below that helped to provide funds to build a new home for Alexander and Victor's family. Thank you for your support and for helping to change this families life!
