Only the hollow blocks are original - meaning, they were made the day this house was put up. Everything else? Recycled. This is how poor some of these families are. They have no running water. No electricity. No phones.
Perhaps because the family works for most of the day outside, out in the rice fields, out in the woods cutting saplings for firewood, out in the river to catch some shrimp, the house just provides basic shelter for sleeping at night.
Would you help her go to school?
$2100.00 (Two thousand one hundred dollars) would help this very bright and promising child get a high school education at St. Augustine School. That is for the entire 4 years of high school. Would you be generous enough and help us in this endeavor? Let us send these poor, bright kids to and through high school at SAS. How much does it cost? $1.24 a day.
The stove is a combination of three stones deployed so that pots can be placed securely atop of them. Then firewood is used to cook. The structure is outside as you can see, not an integral part of the house. This could qualify for a dirty kitchen although by the looks of it, it is more of a makeshift space that will do nicely for the few times the family prepares food.
Working outside most of the day, the family eats on the run sometimes gathering fruits and nuts from nearby brush stands. It must be a hard life not to even have a dining table and some chairs to rest one's weary and tired body after a hard day's work. But some of these needy families - this is it for them pretty much.
Thank you for browsing our site and reading our pages. Indeed, your kindness goes a long way. $2100 for the entire 4 years... would you consider sponsoring a child's high school education?
