Because of your support, we were able to respond to the immediate need of the Dumbuya family.  We provided a wide range of food items including rice, onions, salt/spices, groundnuts and other cooking items. 

This was a tremendous and welcome help to them - as they were then staying temporarily with a neighbor. We also had the opportunity to provide counseling to them during their time of loss - due to passing away of the youngest daughter.   

Their long-term need to find more permanent housing has not been resolved. They still have not been able to find available and affordable housing. With this in mind, they are currently investigating building a zinc/aluminum sheet house. They have obtained permission from a landowner and construction should start in the next month or so. We are continuing to support them through this process. 

Thank you again for helping to bring hope and restore normalcy to their lives.
