We always look for areas in Barrio la Cruz or the surrounding areas that we work in that need some construction repair or work done. Well this trip we asked, planned and as it turned out the few things we originally had planned to do didn’t seem to be panning out. So after a few conversations and “fijese que” moments we came to realize that our main support right in front of us in El Barrio needed help. Rolando’s mom and dad, Berta and Enrique have been living in an adobe room for decades and after many floods, earthquakes and much more it is hardly standing. They wouldn’t dare mention it to us because there are many more in need in their opinion but there was no doubt in our mind, we were going to build them a room.Â Â
Â Â So off we went and bought material and with the help of their family we began to build the block foundation, the wooden post, the lamina, steel walls and roof. It is now more of a home then they could have ever ask for. They are still in need of electricity to the homeÂ but that will take time.Â They are content, it is safe and their own.
