New Land In Port au Prince For The Kids In The Camp - 22 May 2013
On 1 March this year, 2013, the HSKI kids living in Camp Mega4 for the last three years were abruptly informed by the owner of the land that they have this month to prepare to move out. The kids have been in this camp since the earthquake that destroyed our big home along with our four safe houses, There are a total of approximately 2000 individuals and families living in this camp, most of which have absolutely nowhere to go after being evicted. The police and land owners have come to the camp numerous times, usually in the middle of the night,
to reinforce this order. Since the beginning of the terror tactics being used for the evictions, there have been four murders to date of mostly young men at the camp. This came as very devastating and unexpected news to us all.
Even though the camp is a really miserable and dangerous place to live, filled with disease, violence, heat, moskitos and mud, it was a place to live with very few other options at the time. To make things worse, the kids are having even more trouble because of the continuous rain. They are getting completely flooded out every day and night at the camp. The young man in charge there, said he and all the others with him can't sleep in the house nearly every night unless they sleep sitting up. They are having to throw out at least 50 buckets of water several times per night from the floor of the house because of the rain and leaks. The problem is they have no where else to be, until now.
The good news is that some wonderful people in Australia heard about this and have recently purchased 4 centiemes of land in Port au Prince, about 6,500 sq. ft., and are in the process of having a security wall built around the land for the HSKI kids to move to. This is really wonderful news and a wonderful thing that they have done for some very deserving kids that have been having a very difficult time of it.
All of this will be completed as soon as possible and the kids will be able to move to their new land in Port au Prince and start building their new homes and shelters. All that is left to do is raise the funds needed to buy materials for the shelters and living supplies.
That's where all of you come in!
The donors of the land have also arranged for a security wall to be built around the land for the security of the kids. Following this, a water reservoir will need to be dug and built for access to water, as well as constructing toilets and a shower facility.
What is needed now, is funds for the boys to begin building their shelters
where they will live until later when real constructed homes are planned to be built.
