One of our committee members gave a talk at a local Rotary Club and the ensuing generous donation enabled Project Peru, at very short notice, to build a new house for a local family in great need.
We replaced the shanty town 'habitation' of the family of two of the children who have been living in our refuge for quite a few years. We had a foreman whom we employed for this job and who was responsible for the building work [concrete base, wooden walls, corrugated roof] and two of the older brothers helped plus two UK volunteers, one of whom said; 'It was a great experience to help with the house build, although it was hard work... I thought it was fantastic piece of intervention and made such a difference to the life of the family.’'
Would you consider doing something like this?...invite us to make a presentation to your organization? Make a donation that will show immediate results? Go to Peru as a volunteer and do something like this? Or even make up a group of volunteers to achieve even more?
