We believe that every human being is worthy of the basic necessities: food, shelter, water, clothing. We acknowledge, however, that many of our brothers and sisters all over the world lack these crucial elements, likewise here in El Salvador. In Gerardo Barrios, many families live in homes made of sheet metal, plastic bags, cardboard, and any other materials that can be found and wrapped around wooden poles, covering a dirt floor. During the rainy season, many homes are flooded or destroyed and during times of heat the homes are unbearable.
Through the ministry Homes of Hope, over 40 families have received a home, safe and secure, built with love. In addition to the home, the family receives furniture, kitchen items and even new personal items. Our dream is to see a community filled with brightly colored homes where families live in peace, without fear of weather or violence.
