Our team has been busy building a medical clinic in Haiti, but have still managed to continue building homes. The latest homeowner is Guerda Telus.
A look at the homes we built over the past month.
Marie Nicole Cajou and her two children are the new residents of Homes from the Heart's 110th home in Haiti.
Prior to the earthquake, Magdalene Desir lived with her mother, husband, and two daughters. She tragically lost her mother and husband to the earthquake.
Roland Marcelus has been living this tent for the majority of his life
Viergilie Charles has been living in this shack with her mother and four kids.
Natacha St. Loi, 49, lost her husband, one daughter, and home in the 2010 earthquake.
Christine Lafortune, 49, is a farmer with three children and two grandchildren. This tent has served as their home since the earthquake.
Carline's family has been on Homes from the Heart's list for over a year. Unfortunately, her mother passed away in February.
Thank you once again for supporting the work we do and allowing us to complete our next home. It is hard to believe we are already wrapping up home 102 and are moving right along with the next home.
Oftentimes, our homes can give all families, but especially women, the sense of security and financial means to move forward with their goals instead of remaining in a seemingly endless pattern of struggling.
"Now I can die in peace," said 69 year old Lucienne Joseph. "Having a house was my last wish!"
The recipient of home 98 in Haiti is Josette Arnold, age 57. Josette has lived with her two children in the backyard of her church for the past five years.
Homes from the Heart is all about taking stories of loss and converting them into stories of giving. That brings us to home number 96.
Our team in Haiti completed its 95th home this week. The recipient of our home, Yvonne Poteau, experienced tragedy and the neighborhood came together to begin building a home, but ran out of resources. That is when they turned to Homes from the Heart to help them complete the job.
Guerda Charles is the recipient of Homes from the Heart's 94th home completed last week in Haiti. Guerda has been taking care of her grandchildren ever since the death of their mother in the earthquake.
Philogène "Nène" Edner is 56 years old and has always lived in the dirt house pictured below with his four children and one grandchild. The home is make shift and requires Nène to use buckets to catch leaking rain water. He has continued to raise those children after the loss of his wife in earthquake.
