Winter in the Kingdom
Even as snowflakes began to fall weeks ago, applications were still being submitted to us for help with repair and weatherization projects. Here's a report on one application for assistance we successfully answered:
Lisa had been without water for weeks, her shower control leaked, her kitchen faucet leaked so badly she had to shut it off altogether, and both toilets leaked. Not only that, she had tried everyone she could think of to get help with no success whatsoever. A truly desperate woman and a perfect plumbing storm.
Our NEK Habitat team arrived and in the course of a few hours the line to the spring was purged and water was flowing freely to t
he house, the bathroom lavatory had its screen cleaned, the downstairs toilet had a part replaced and no longer leaked, the shower was operational, and Lisa was happy and relieved. She could at last shower, wash clothes, even flush the toilet without filling it with a bucket first.
Because of our committed volunteers and our wonderful donors, we had the helpers and the funds, and could assist Lisa in this urgent situation.
Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
A world where everyone has a decent place to live.
