Haiti: International Women’s Day – We build our homes!

Inspiration News

Women who make up the sister organizations of Sopu Fanm pou Fanm came together to celebrate International Women’s Day in a very special way.  Women from Le Phare, SOPUDEP, OBMP, Mojub and WOZO decided to forfeit a party and instead bought cement, blocks, sand and zinc to build houses for two of their members [ Claudina from Mojub and Ciliana from Le Phare]  who lost everything in the 2010 earthquake.  It’s taken 5 years but finally with the help of donations from delegation and funds collected by the women, two new homes will be built.  Though still modest they will at least be made of bricks and mortar.
