The Phoenix Branch held a HH project two years ago in the community. At the time they provided tarps and built a latrine, but they were quickly overwhelmed and unable to complete the needed help for the community. The men living in the community joined the Helping Hands to help place the tarps on the rooftops of the homes. This community is 95% Indian population and 5% black. The Phoenix area is predominately Indian. During apartheid this area was designated to the Indian people.
The goal is to send in a proposal to the Area Humanitarian to help with purchasing tarps for these people. Thank you to everyone who pays their tithes and offerings that makes humanitarian work possibly throughout the world.
