Maria Vargas’ home was in bad shape to begin with, but when Hurricane Lisa hit the village in November 2022, her home sustained a lot of damage. Part of her roof blew off, which we fixed temporarily. The structure itself we were able to also fix with some temporary 2 x 4 beams. Besides the roof damage, the floor is rock and mud with old linoleum over top of it. There are gaps between the wood walls throughout her home and the roof leaks.
Maria has property on which we can build and a septic system already, although she does not have an indoor toilet. This home will be a small 20 x 16 house construction project.
