Build Retaining Wall for Our Laos Family

The family here took us in, cared for us and fed us from their daily catches on the river.  They show us generosity beyond measure each day we stay here.  We want to return the favor and help them fund the project for the retaining wall to divert water from eating away at the land.
Money donated will help build a retaining wall and all remaining proceeds will go to the family.  Early storms have already eroded the land in front of the bungalows all but ensuring that they will not last the rainy season.  Building the retaining wall will help prevent unnecessary hardships the family will encounter.

We will post pictures as the project progresses.

Thank you in advance for any donations and your time in reading about this cause!
