Operation Compassion Joins Forces to Build Homes for the Homeless Overseas

By , July 10, 2007

Operation Compassion has joined forces with four International Charities to build homes for the homeless in third world countries. The houses are five hundred square feet with an exterior portico kitchen. More than ten thousand of these homes have been built and are scheduled for building this year. Each charity has a pivotal part to play in the construction.

During the last four months, Operation Compassion has sent ninety-three forty foot containers of building supplies consisting of wall board for the interior and exterior, stucco to finish the exterior, electrical supplies (everything to wire a house), plumbing (everything including fixtures), flooring (tile and cement), fans and furniture.

With the construction of these new homes 10,000 families will be able to live in better circumstances than they are now. Many of these families are living in cardboard lean-tos or on the streets. With most living well below $300 annual income per household, having a new home provided for them means a new lease on life. Children will be able to get off the streets and receive an education because they now have a place to call home.

Through the partnership of these five charities, giving homes to single mothers, homeless families and senior adult couples, Operation Compassion continues to find methods to help as many as possible caught in the web of poverty and lift them from hopeless circumstances. With some of the poorest people on earth living in these countries, Operation Compassion is committed to making a difference in lives of hurting people.
