First Phase of Construction

The first phase of construction for an eventual 2 story 10,000 sq. ft medical clinic with living space on the second floor has begun. Construction of a 10 ft. high wall around the entire 3 1/2 acres of property began in January 2008. Large rocks, stones and sand have been loaded by hand onto trucks and transported to our land in Fonde Fred. A shallow well has been dug by hand to supply water needed for mixing with cement to make the concrete blocks. Construction in Haiti is expensive in part because building supplies such as cement are expensive and it is so labor intensive. The wall should be completed by the end of April, 2008.
