Reaskmay's House

Dear Friends,

We hope all is well with you and yours. We are now back in Nanaimo and settled into life here. Although we are home K.I.D.S. carries on with our ongoing programs and projects. We wanted to let you know that we have finished the house for one of the girls in our Smart Kids education sponsorship program. The building took a little longer as this house had some special building specifics that were needed. We are so happy to let you know that Reaksmay, her two sisters and her disabled father are now happily moved into their new house and they finally have a home of their own and do not have to live in the
community hall anymore. For many years the family has lived in the small open community hall building. Reaksmay, has been the main caregiver, for her disabled father and younger sister since her mother died many years ago.

Community Hall Where The Family They Lived for Many Years
Thanks to Lush Charity Pot we were able to build a new house with a large inside barrier free bathroom for the father and family. They now have solar lighting as well as lots of water containers so they do not have to get water from the pond or bathe in the pond behind their house. We also put in a tile floor as the father spends a lot of time on the floor as he cannot walk. Having a bathroom and a house with walls will certainly ease their situation.

Reaksmay's older sister has come home to help Reaksmay. Reaksmay is getting an education as is her younger sister thanks to K.I.D.S. and we also help support them with necessities. The family wanted us to pass on their deep appreciation for assisting them all and giving them a safe, clean home where they can live in dignity and comfort together.

For this family, a dream has come true... Thanks to you!
All the very best,
Rick and Adrianne
