The reality of this family is devestating and C-re-aid has seldom seen a situation where a family of 9 people own nothing but 3 chicken. For Deveto (45) , her 6 children and 2 grandchildren the help of the village leaders of Shimbwe came just in time. After her husband died she was removed from her previous property and forced to return to her home village, Shimbwe, with literally no belonings. Due to the situation the community decided to provide the family with a new piece of land that can be used to rebuild their infrastructure and lives. Deveto is responsible for everyone in the family since her two oldest daughters recently became unexpected monthers themselves. She has started the hard work of leveling her new plot of land herself, ready to start building. C-re-aid has decided to help this family with a full new start and will create two projects with this family since the needs are high. A house to host all 9 people, toilet, kitchen and possibly a small infrastructure to start a business to make sure enough livelihood can be created for all inhabitants.
Currently local materials and new possible building techniques are being researched by the C-re-aid team in assistance with the local village governance. Further this year we will comfirm the building materials for this proejct.
