Construction contractor Fred Boettcher, who has worked with Jan on all of her projects in Haiti, designed this special shelter that can be used to help provide housing for earthquake victims in Haiti. These little homes can be built for a total cost of roughly $500 each—which includes everything from wood to nails and screws—are designed to last for about three to five years through winds and rain.
Thousands of yards of the colorful weatherproof tarp covering has been donated to Smile of a Child by Don and Sondra Tipton of Friend Ships Ministry. Jan and her team are in the process of looking for land in Haiti where these homes can be built. PLEASE PRAY! As soon as property is found, these little dwellings can be built and will provide shelter and housing for thousands of Haitians.
