Belkes was living in extreme poverty in the Dominican Republic. She has 2 children. When we visited her home, we found it tied together with rags and plastic backs. We were afraid to enter for fear it would fall.
Mary Cahoon and her family in Calgary, Alberta heard of the family and felt great compassion for them. She started raising money for their home on January 21st and January 31st had raised the amount needed to build.
Now Belkes and her children are living in a beautiful new home. Thank you to every donor who helped make this possible.
