Peru House Completed!

The MicroAid house for the Ormachea-Hermoza family is done!  And I am back from four months in Peru.

.

 

.

It was a big project for us, and a life-changing event for them.

 

 

.

As you know, the family lost their adobe home in the floods of 2010, and had been living in a shack ever since.

.

 

 

.

.

There will be 12 people living in the new house—it has 5 rooms and is 1,400 square feet, with a second-floor foundation, and will withstand any future floods or earthquakes.

.

 

.

Dozens and dozens in the extended family will benefit from this home.  And our worked helped the community by employing people and injecting much-need cash into the local economy.

.

 

.

While I was in the town of Urubamba in the Sacred Valley building the house, I posted many pictures to the blog—as well as a profile of the family—and smaller details of working in the southern hemisphere winter at 12,000 feet.  (see posts below)

.

 

.

The family was very aware that there is a group of donors that made our assistance possible. They often asked to see pictures of everyone.

.

Next time, I will bring pictures of the donors to show them.

.

 

.

A special thanks to our interpreter Erin O’Rourke for her tireless dedication to the project.  Her presence on the site every day was essential to its success.

.

 

.

I trust you enjoyed the updates I sent out during my four months in the Peruvian Andes.

.

 

.

Things may be quiet for a while as I prep the next disaster recovery project—and raise the money.

.

I hope you are happy, healthy, and secure.

.

Thank you for all the support and good wishes.

.

Sincerely,

.

Jon Ross
