New Secure Housing

Donate to Share Hope

The underserved residents of Guatemala, Guyana, Jamaica, Haiti, Nicaragua, Honduras, and El Salvador often make their homes in tents or rickety shacks made from cardboard, plastic, tin, or other discarded materials. Their rudimentary dwellings have dirt floors, and provide little protection against the elements or even intruders. These families are highly susceptible to waterborne diseases because of their unhygienic practices. With no water or indoor plumbing, they relieve themselves in bushes or in shared rivers or watering holes with local farm animals – all contaminated water sources from which they retrieve their daily household water supply.

The New Secure Housing project is being established under Food For The Poor’s (FFTP) Housing program to provide impoverished families with safe alternatives to their precarious living conditions, which for many will be their very first real home. Each house is being built to accommodate an average family of 6. Quality control inspections ensure that the firmer foundation and significant structural improvements will withstand years of extreme weather conditions, and extend the life of the house.
