Let's Build a House in Zimbabwe!

This is my good friend Gladman. We worked together last year on a worm farm in South Africa and have become unlikely, yet close friends. I am raising money to build a house for him and his family in their native Zimbabwe. For just $325 more, this dream for them can become a reality. One way to give is through Go Fund Me. There is a 5% fee for using gofundme. You may also reply to me at 4503 Dayton Blvd, Chattanooga, TN 37415, and I will add any additional donations to the total.

Currently Gladman, his wife Priscilla, and their two young children are renting a room in a boarding house with 10 other people in Chinhoyi, Zimbabwe. Their rent is covered through August. I am raising money to have a 4 room brick house built for them on some land that belonged to his late father and grandfather. They used to live there in grass huts that have since long been destroyed. This new house will not have electricity or plumbing because it is in a rural area. With all of the economic and political problems currently in Zimbabwe, here is an opportunity to help this wonderful family who just need a place to live. He and his wife Priscilla have a 7 year old son, Ephraim and a 4 year old daughter, Neggie. I am not the best at fundraising and have never done anything like this before, but I feel led to help my friends in Africa. Thank you in advance if you are able to help too.
