Imagine living in a decrepit, unsafe hovel made from waste material on top of old mining tunnels that could explode and sink any moment. Imagine having no water to drink, no safe place to raise your children, no food or clean water to give your starving baby. Imagine your children never learning to read because they have to drop out of school to support your family. Imagine living in constant fear that your “home” will one day be destroyed.
This is what it is like for the families living in the poverty stricken high-risk zone of Santa Pancha in Malpaisillo, Leon, Nicaragua. These families live in such poverty they can barely meet their basic needs for food, have little access to safe, clean drinking water and are in desperate need of safe housing. Our goal is to build 1000 new homes costing $5,200.00 each.
King's Ransom Foundation, Dani Johnson and Food For The Poor have teamed up to bring these families out of their destitute conditions through the construction of a community center and double-unit homes with sanitation, access to potable water and sustainable chicken farms.
The Santa Pancha Village Community Development project will provide a new way of living for hundreds of residents. Each double-unit home will be equipped with two bedrooms, a living room, a personal sanitation unit and a connection for potable water.
The Community center will be built in the central part of the village for easy access by the residents and will serve as a place for educational, spiritual, cultural and social activities promoting community development.
Together we CAN transform this poverty stricken village into a safe, thriving community!
The land for the village and community center have been donated by the city council. Now it’s our turn to step up to build this community and break these families free from the bondage of poverty and suffering. Together we can give them a FUTURE!
Your donation will take these families...these starving children...out of poverty and give them HOPE!
