The Lighthouse Group Brisbane
How amazing ! The house was completed on the 26th August and a completion ceremony followed that included Monks doing a blessing lost of food for all of the surrounding families and celebrations. To add to the celebrations, it was Ricks birthday, so they had a wonderful time.
Rick also wired the house with Mr Narrat so the family also has electricity.
This has filled the families heart with hope. They keep standing back and just staring at the house in disbelief that people from another country would care enough to do this for them. As they have always lived in very bad housing where they have been susceptible to many diseases, having a home that is safe and dry has changed everything for them, no more sleepless wet nights in the rainy season, cool days under their home and the lifting of their spirits by having a nice home to come to. Happy Hub donated, foam mattresses for the family (they were sleeping on the floor), mosquito nets and a water filter system to ensure they have clean drinking water.
Qantas staff at Brisbane airport donated a water well that will be used by all the villagers.
Grace Lutheran College donated a latrine with a washroom that all of the families can use.
Words cannot express how much this means to the family and the villagers.
Thank you so much.
