Day 4: A new home for António and Salomão!

After the devastating floods in Chokwé, the hut of brothers António and Salomão was completely destroyed. Under inhumane conditions they slept in the rain, wind and cold. Thanks to the support of their sponsors via UPG Portugal the life of this family changed and they managed to have a new home!

“The construction work for the brothers’ house has begun now we have to do the structure for the main beam, after that the roof will follow (...) in last Sunday’s meeting presided by me, as chairman of the Chinhacanine Youngsters’ Committee, it was agreed that the Committee would support the cost for renting the structural  equipment (by selling bricks produced by them), in addition to the volunteering help provided for building the house, because this really is a family in need.”

A local report from Silvestre, our ALG Local Technician in Santa Luísa de Marillac, Manjangue and also one of our dedicated Uni Scholarship students. Silvestre gathered the local population and his Youngsters’ Committee to help in the construction of these brothers’ new home for these.
