Dioleta and Julio live in a small community many miles back into the countryside on very rough roads. Julio is mute and has bad eyesight. Dioleta has many health concerns, and very high blood pressure. They also struggle with very poor living conditions, a roof that leaks, and a house that is very insecure. Dioleta has 7 children that help support her, but only one of her daughters, who a single mom, lives with her. It is very important that they move closer to a hospital due to their deteriorating health. Their daughter bought the piece of land where we’ll be building their home hoping that moving to that land will get them closer to the highway and better access to a hospital. The family is looking forward to having a safe and secure home where they can live out their senior years in comfort.
Live Different chooses to employ and work alongside local labourers and tradespeople in communities where we have established connections and relationships. No family is ever simply a “project” for us, and each family is chosen and approved through a process with local community workers. Each home is one that will be built with love, hope, and dignity – together.
