In Haiti, we are continuing our partnership with God’s Littlest Angels (GLA), a Haitian orphanage located in the mountains above Pétion-Ville. We are working with GLA to build homes for those who lost almost everything in the 2010 earthquake. One such home is being built for Vierge, a widow and GLA staff member. The house was started just two weeks ago and is now almost complete.
The house has two rooms and will eventually be equipped with an inside toilet. GLA has hired a great mason to construct the house, and a separate team will come afterward to install the metal roof. More construction has been completed since these photos were taken, and the roof will be installed next week.
Vierge continually tells GLA how happy she and her seven children are with the progress on the house. They can hardly wait to move into it and make it their home!
This is one of three homes that Messenger International is building in partnership with GLA, and it is one of 16 houses GLA will construct in total. Construction on the remaining homes will begin as soon the Haitian construction crew has completely finished Vierge’s home this week.
Vierge and her family send their thanks to everyone who donated funds to the earthquake relief project!
