Hello every one I just receive a message from Emily about looking for people to do fundraisers to help them get a house to accommodate everyone appropriately. Please just take a minute to read her message over I will be posting a link to her website, which is also on the side bar of my blog. I you cannot donate please at least pass the word, every little bit helps!
Caleb’s House is desperately seeking relocation as the house, and as most of you already know is too small, unsafe, and also unsanitary for us and most importantly the children. The house we had previously planned to rent fell through as we would only be able to rent the house for 2 months and we need something more permanent. We are currently located on a highway road without a fence and have already had tires fly off of trucks into our yard where the children are playing. Have also had a few other security issues in terms of people entering our property that were unwanted. We also experience issues with electricity and water.. we only get electricity about once every two weeks and we have gone 3 times now without water for over 3 days each time which leaves the kids unable to bath, our cook unable to cook, and us unable to wash clothes. All of the children’s families are located in the port au prince/petionville area and where we are located now is about an hour and a half from them. They are unable to visit the children because they cannot afford transportation. We have desperately been seeking a house to rent in the petionville area and finally came across the perfect house. It has 5 bedrooms, it is 2 levels, has a huge living room, a big kitchen, two bathrooms, a large yard to play in, it is situated next to the hospital that I have the children registered at, it has a big wall and gate for security, and it is in a very quiet and secure area. However, the owner is asking $10,000 per year for the house- which is not in our budget at the moment. I am still negotiating the price with the owner but also looking around for other houses- so far, no luck !! We need to find a house by this week or we will have to remain in the house we are currently in for another year since I have to register the children at school on Monday ! I do not wish to take the children out of school half way through their school year. I am asking if any friends or family will be able to assist us with fundraising or if anyone has any ideas for us that will help us raise the money to rent the house for the year !! Any help will be truly appreciated. Every penny counts and even just by spreading the word it will help us greatly. Please help me to provide a comfortable home for my children who so badly deserve it !!!
Please message me if you have any fundraising ideas or are able to assist us in any way !
