Guatemala City Dump Home Building
Organized by: Tim Apisa
EVENT DATE Jul 26, 2014
I will be traveling with a group to Guatemala City to help build cinder block homes, teach a sports clinic for kids among other things. I will be participating mostly in the construction part. The community we are working in has cropped up outside of the city dump, where, out of desparation, families scavenge through the garbage to find sustenance. They can often clean up items they find and sell them, or they are finding food for their families.
I went last year, and my eyes were opened to a level of poverty that most of us cannot imagine. For the one week that we are there, it never seems that we can do enough, but its something for these people...and thats better than doing nothing.
