On Sunday after the holiday breakfast Laiga and Juris along with five-year-old daughter and seven-year old son departed from the greens to enjoy the fresh holiday. When they came back, everything was in order. Around seven in the evening Laigai noticed smoke in the laundry shed hand, and immediately called her husband, who was not at home at the time. When Juris arrived, flames already increased in force. At home at the time he was also Juris parents and brother. Everyone did what they could - carried off from home furnishings and apparel, however, despite the efforts of fire, the house of 170 square meters suffered so thoroughly that what is left is demolished. I managed to extinguish the fire only at night. Juris currently with his wife and children live in the neighborhood, but the parents to another son. What more insurance! With our salaries ... exclaims Juris.
As many of you already know, on October 4, 2016, Hurricane Matthew, a Category 4 Hurricane, made landfall on the Island of Haiti, leaving behind massive and unspeakable destruction. According to the latest Reuters report, the death toll is well over 900 and more than 60,000 are displaced. Sadly, those numbers continue to rise daily. Hurricane Matthew destroyed a good 90% of the Southern peninsula of Haiti, which was the main provider of much of the local food for the rest of the country. Food is already becoming a scarce commodity. Disease is fastly spreading. Most of the water available to victims is unsafe for drinking and now the vast majority of the population, the more vulnerable, are left, once more, to fend for themselves in order to survive.We are called again to do what we can, to the best of our abil

Over 8 years I've had the honor of being taken into a storyline that has forever changed my life. I was invited to walk with the families of a place then named La Chureca, a masssive unregulated trash dump that was home tothousands. It was a place of work and survival in a country hosting over a 70% unemployment rate and the unfortunate stat of being the poorest nation in Central and South America. Children played barefoot amongst the burning refuge, stepping over needles discarded from medical waste while their parents worked endless hours rummaging through trash.
