LAMA DESPERATELY NEEDS FUNDS TO BUILD A HOUSE IN GAMBIA


The house he lives in is unsafe. The roof leaks and the walls are literally falling down.

Learn more from Lama   http://www.urbancolours.online  in his own words from his website.  See his Home Project page and please look at his Budget in his web menu.  

Lama is 18 years old. He is very poor, and struggles to provide for his single mother and his 4 younger siblings. His father died a few months ago.

The relatives who own the land and house that Lama's family are living in, would seriously like Lama's family, to move out.

The problem is, they have absolutely nowhere else to go.

The Good News is that Lama's father who worked as a crop laborer in Guinea, has left the family a small piece of land. Lama's father worked away from home, because of the lack of work in The Gambia. He had been saving over his lifetime, to build a safe house for his family. He died of Malaria.

Until he died, the family had no idea. He had meant it as a surprise. 

All the responsibility now falls on Lama, as the eldest to provide for his family. He has had to leave school and get a job. After an endless search, he finally has a job, as an assistant,  in a wholesale foods store at the Brikama Market.  He earns $57 per month, just enough to feed the family. It is not enough to build a house... that is an urgent priority. They family is desperate. The fret even time it rains or the wind blows. It is difficult to keep anything dry during the wet-season.

Lama at night studies, is self learning with me on how to do html & css on Facebook. It is very difficult because without access to power, he has to do this by phone.

Who am I?

My name is Maria Altmann and I live in Australia. I have worked on community projects most of my life but now, I am mostly retired.

I do hope you hear Lama's desperate call. He is a humble, hard-working generous and extremely honest young man.

Lama is very stressed by his housing situation, and appeals to your goodwill to help him fundraise and give him your support.
