Our small support with only help to not only rebuild their homes but also their lives, in a way changing bringing some positivity around. The most important thing in this initiative is we start from the bottom, Right from carrying the bricks to putting cement and constructing a whole new place which they can call 'know as 'Home'. The happiness they get and the relief they get as they again will be having a shelter to live under to be with their family is priceless"
