Creating a Sense of Community by Providing Safe Shelter and Clean Water for the Poor
Light a Single Candle, Cross International, and Rainbow Network have partnered together to build houses with latrines and install a water system in the Nicaraguan village of San Agustin. 25 Nicaraguan families now have safe, sturdy new homes and access to clean, abundant water. These homes were transferred to the families in a joyous ceremony filled with music and dancing. Each family was presented with a Spanish-language Bible, a housewarming gift, and the key to their home — which for many families was the first key they have ever owned.
