New Healthy Home

Description: In a typical home in the High Andes, families live daily in life-threatening conditions. Their food is both stored and prepared on a dirt floor and cooking is done inside with no ventilation. Over time smoke and ash builds up on the walls and ceiling causing harm to both the lungs and eyes of these families. No clean water is available. Animals run freely through the homes, leaving their waste to come in contact with both the food and the peoples’ beds that are on the floor. And there are no windows or openings for light to come into the home. In a New Healthy Home, light pours into the home with the new skylights that are installed. Ash and smoke no longer cloud the walls. Stoves are built that vent the smoke outside; shelves and cupboards are built, allowing the people to store their food and dishes in a better location, free from animal waste and dirt floors. Animals are moved from the homes to pens outside, and their beds are no longer on the floor. Clean water is routed to the home as well giving these families a place to wash their hands, clean their dishes and have a drink of water. Villagers perform all the labor to build these New Healthy Homes, and all the materials are provided by Hope Projects with the help of your donation of $240, or $20/month. Join Hope Projects in giving these families the chance to transform their homes to healthy living environments, where they can create new memories and hope for generations to come.
