Sundance #6. Building floors for kids to play on in Nicaragua.Jill Dorjath
On September 17th, 2023, I’ll be running the 10 mile ‘Dam to Damloop’ from Amsterdam to Zaandam to raise money for Habitat for Humanity. I appreciate your support and any small contribution you make will instantly go to a good cause.
Habitat is a non-profit organization that works toward a vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Join me in building concrete floors for 5 families in Esteli, Nicaragua. Currently, many families there live in homes with dirt floors, and that can cause serious health problems.
This project is focused on supporting female-run households with children below the age of 6 as well as the elderly and people with disabilities.
I’m raising money for this project because concrete floors:
•improve households’ physical environment and hygiene
•improve quality of life
•reduce gastrointestinal and respiratory diseases
•help improve children's cognitive development
•provide protection against flooding and heavy rains
•are easy to install, durable and resistant
•are produced locally
•are low-cost and environmentally friendly
•reduce the growth of viruses, bacteria and parasites
•are washable and therefore more hygienic
Thank you for making an impact with me one life at a time.
Let’s do this, friends,
