Humanitarian Build in Dominican Republic Officially Underway!
Tuesday late afternoon our own Ron, Yvonne, and Rhiana Hendriks, along with over 180 other volunteers through the Ontario Homebuilders' Association, landed safely in the Dominican Republic to kickoff the weeklong Humanitarian Build in Puerto Plata. The 2011 OHBA Humanitarian Build and Conference has the main goal of building 6 houses for needy families living in a very poor barrios (called Aguas Negras) around the Puerto Plata area. As it was officially the second day of building today, Rhiana Hendriks (Ron and Yvonne's daughter) had this to say about the first day of the Build...
"We finished one day and are about to start the second! Gonna be a hot day but all the houses are looking good! We have been laying blocks, forming, and hauling lots of fill for the floor. Living conditions are very poor and there is garbage everywhere! Should be a good day and just thought I'd let you all know what we are up to!"
If you want to stay up-to-date with the Humanitarian Build, please check back periodically. You can also visit these great links to get information, recent updates and blogs from the people down in Dominican, and view videos from each day of the Build!
