Housing

Current projects:  Earlier this year the Voice of Love Foundation donated funds to begin construction on houses for three families. VOL donated US$1000 to purchase the raw materials for each house and all of the labor is performed by the families and volunteers from the church and the community.

Past projects: In 2012, VOL held a fundraising dinner at St. Luke’s and was able to build 18 houses for families in need. These single room homes are approximately 14ft x 24ft and provide shelter for families. Each house costs ~US$1000 and each family is encouraged to contribute ~$100  and participate in the construction of their home. In most cases the house is constructed with the help of the family, friends, relatives and local volunteers. In 2013, we provided two more houses. Below are pictures of the houses that VOL helped fund in 2012 and 2013.
