In areas of deep poverty, families live in huts or shacks. They battle seasonal downpours, rotting floors, collapsing roofs, and cracks in infrastructure. Rains ruin their belongings. Bacteria growth and viruses leave them ill. Insect bites lead to malaria and other diseases. Without lockable doors, strangers enter with ease.
Through our Global Housing program, we do what shacks cannot—provide shelters to families that will last a lifetime. We build homes with cement blocks, wood trusses, and tin roofs for sturdiness. Our local committee chooses home recipients, often orphans and widows. If they are able, new home owners help with construction. Many attend our home stewardship classes.
Because of our sponsors, we have provided homes to over 400 families in Christ’s name.
