Housing Update

In total this year we had 12 houses built and two existing houses had new roofs. We also purchased a piece of land for one of the houses to be built on. The cost of materials has increased vastly; a bag of cement has increased three fold from last year.

The corrugated iron for the roofs increased by £2.00 a sheet in the month we were there. The average cost now of a house is £150. The houses are very basic but what they do is give hope and shelter for families as well as livestock.

All the houses we had built last year are still in good repair. The occupants are well and those that had wells are growing vegetables and some have enough to sell.
