Help Finish Home in Africa

28928052_15230689200_r.jpegI am from Bamako, Mali in Africa. I moved to America and married my wonderful wife and have two beautiful daughters and another on the way. I am so grateful. My family (my mom, brother, sister, and extended family) in Africa however, still struggle to provide for themselves and are dependent upon me to send money home when I can. I can only send home a little bit at a time.

My family received a donation to start the construction of our home. It was not enough to finish it, and it still looks like it does in the picture. Right now, they are stuck sleeping in the unfinished house, and the rainy season starts at the end of June. The house needs to be finished so my family can have a safe, dry place to stay for years and years to come. $10,000-$15,000 is needed to finish the house. The framing is completed, but all the finishing work still needs to be done.28928052_155529349627749_r.jpegThe money raised with this gofundme will be used to drastically change the lives of my family in Africa and give them access to things we don't even think twice about; access to running water, indoor bathrooms and cooking spaces, air conditioning and even refrigeration. Please consider donating to help make this a reality for myself and my family. Thank you and God bless.28928052_1555293532271372_r.jpeg
