The last full day in Haiti for the Hope team was indeed a full day! We loaded up trucks with buckets, shovels and teammates. Tonight, two more houses have concrete floors. Local men are hired to mix the materials, and it’s our job to create a bucket brigade, passing the cement through the house, with another Haitian smoothing it out. It’s hard work, but so satisfying to see the job from start to finish.
We also planted fruit trees at the same houses, some of which will bear fruit in the next 6 months. Hot work today, under the midday sun.
The garbage can beautification project was finished today. The word for garbage can in Creole is “poubel”, which literally translates to “for beauty”. The 55 gallon drums are indeed beautiful now!
