Our family in haiti needs your help

Hello. 

We are asking for help to finish building a home in Haiti.  We have funded a large part of the build with our own income, but we are looking for a little help to get this build finished.  We have already bought the land, set the foundation, built he walls, and prepared the plumbing for the bathroom.  Currently, we are up to the point of putting the doors, windows, and roof on the house.  After the roof is done, the walls outside need to be finished, the bathrooms and kitchen needs to be finished, and all the interior work needs to be finished.   We will also need to find furnishings for the house such as beds, tables, and chairs.   We will be the owners of the house, but the house will be used by my family  both immediate and extended in Haiti.   Eventually, we would like to expand the home for guests visiting Haiti, but for now, we just want to get the house livable for the immediate need.

My family currently lives in a very bad part of Haiti where there is a lot of crime, voodoo, and no jobs.  The conditions are unsanitary, and there is a lot of illness.  The  house we are building is in the city of Mirebalis, and it is a much better place for them.  The area is much safer, the condition is more sanitary,.  There are  also more good schools and more jobs in that area.  This will be a much better place for my mother, father, brothers, sisters, nieces, and nephews.  There will be at least 10 people living there at all times, and I am sure extended family from time to time.  

We have  put in about $25,000 so far with the land,  materials, legal fees, and labor.  We need about $10,000 to $15,000  more to finish.  

Thank you!
