Location: Upstreet Community, Bluefields, Westmoreland, Jamaica
A single mom, and her three boys live here, although many times one or two of the boys would stay with relatives due to the condition of the home. When we arrived, there were many rotten boards around the entire house, and looking underneath, we discovered most of the floor joists were rotten too.
Our team of Jamaican and American volunteers replaced all the rotten boards and joists, which was about 50% of the entire home. We also primed and painted the entire structure, and added a new, sturdy back door, so the family could have a safe place to call “home”.
