Along with the local villagers, AMURT and AMURTEL (Lady managed) relief teams have completed construction and roofing for 52 of the 120 families in the village of Les Cayes. The villagers create the frames
Those benefited are ecstatic and have had celebratory parties to express their gratitude.
Meanwhile, AMURTEL has generated micro-credit programs to help the women lift themselves out of poverty.
Those not yet benefited are understandably anxious to resume a normal life with some shelter, and we wish to avoid confrontations between the “haves” and the “have-nots.” To do so, we need an additional $12,000 US to cover the expense of galvanized steel roofing sheets at $140 per house.
Donations are tax-deductible, and are gratefully accepted at www.amurt.net , www.amurtel.org ,
Checks may be sent to AMURT at 2502 Lindley Terrace, Rockville MD 20850.
Thanks, and best wishes for a lovely Holy Day season!
