Perpetual Progress:

Final steps before walls go up:
The final stages of contruction, up to ground level are now almost complete on a number of the homes being built at the Hope Centre Burundi. The underground tanks are installed, the floors of the homes are in place, now the team begin on the walls. Over the next few weeks we hope to be able to show pictures of the houses beginning to look like the finished article. We also want to be able to give you news of the arrival of the shipping container where lots of building materials are held.

Burundi project construction work continues apace!

Hope Centre makes great progress:
Even through the rainy season, currently in full swing in Burundi, the Hope Centre work has continued. Charles & Val Carr undaunted by the heavy rain and flooding have continued their vital work in the construction of the orphan's homes.
The only way is UP!

Much of the construction work, up to ground level (sewage systems, foundations etc) has been completed. Large amounts of pressed blocks have been created and stored ready for use and the busy team await the arrival of the container which holds lots of construction materials as well as tools and equipment.
