Description

Many persons in Jamaica are living in poor conditions due to a natural or man-made disaster, or because they have fallen on hard times.

On the humanitarian program, the aim is to provide assistance to those in need by helping to renovate their homes so that they can live in better conditions.

Volunteers will help to renovate, repair, build a space (room, bathroom, kitchen) for these individuals and help to make them more comfortable.

Volunteers work alongside a local skilled tradesman and are provided with the necessary support.

Volunteering on this project helps participants to transform lives, to see the before and after, and witness the joy that they will bring to the lives of others by helping to create a habitable for space for them to live.
