Wonnekar House Fund

$3,615 of $10,900 goal

Raised by 13 people in 25 months
Vero Wonnekar is a widowed mother without a home for her family. The funds will all be used to make this house a home for Vero and her four children.

Vero's late husband, Emmanuel Wonnekar, began this house in Monrovia, Liberia, just before his sickness that led to his death in July 2015. Vero and her children have lived with relatives because they do not have the means to buy a home or to finish this house.

A contractor has provided a written estimate and plan to finish this project. The house includes a room for sewing garments to sell, which is a means of earning money for Vero.

Rita and Merle have been friends with the Wonnekars since meeting the family in Liberia in 2010. We personally have many contacts in this city, and can verify that the project is a critical need. Every dollar will be used to make this house a livable home. 

This project is ready to begin immediately.

Thank you! Your help will make a great impact on a wonderful family.

Vero’s house is changing rapidly now, as new things are completed. Here are new photos just received today. She is thrilled! We are all very grateful for every donation, no matter what size.

This project is still very much alive, and still needing funding. To date, we have used all the donations to transfer a total of $3878.35 to Liberia. The house is being improved, and she will soon move into it, though it is still not finished. Several rooms still need cement floors, and the bathroom fixtures need to be installed. We just sent the last of the available funds today, so they can continue working while these funds last.

We are pleased to report that the first instalment of funding has been wired to Vero, so that the contractor can begin installing doors and window for security.

We ask that you consider helping see this project to completion. Thank you very much!

We want to be clear about how these donations are handled: We will withdraw funds and track each transaction on a spreadsheet; we will wire all available funds to Vero via Western Union, converting funds to United States dollars in the process. You may ask for a complete record of transactions at any time.

We're making progress, and we expect that work can begin before long. Please consider any gift, very small or larger. The family is very grateful!
Rita, Vero, and two of her kids.
