Temporary Home in the Garbage Dump

Ministry That Matters

Dominicans living in the city trash dump build temporary homes out of pieces of aluminum, tarps and any other materials they can scavenge. Unfortunately, many of these temporary homes are completely destroyed every time a heavy rain falls. Most people work in the dump but never earn enough money to move out of the dump or build a real home. This year, RIM will be building 4 permanent homes for families in March and 1-2 more in July.
