Miledy lives in the Dominican Republic with her a 15 year old daughter and a 17 year old son. She lost her oldest son in October 2015 to a brain tumor. In November, one of her friends took us to see her home. It has been more than a year since she could live in it because of the dreadful conditions of the structure.
The money for the home was raised in 11 days in December by Dominican Starfish Foundation in an Advent Fundraiser. Thanks so much to all who donated.
The construction on the home was started with the help of Hand in Hands and the pre-med team from the University of Lethbridge.
The home was complete by Dominican Starfish Foundation. One thing that makes us very happy is that the family (Miledy’s x-husband) also donated materials and time to add some little extras to the home.
