In partnership with SOMEDCO, we build sturdy houses for families living in extreme poverty in Vietnam and share the gospel with them.
We thank God for the opportunity to help the Do Thanh Huong family in Vietnam build a new house, our 2nd house in partnership with SOMEDCO.
About the FAmily
Do Thanh Huong was born in 1952, and his wife, Huynh Thi Thu was born in 1954. This couple is Christian, and they attend the Moc Hoa church. Mr. Do Thanh Huong used to be a deacon at the church.
After he suffered from a serious liver disease for a long time, he was healed by God. However, he still has weak health. Mrs. Huynh Thi Thu is a housewife, and she also suffers from poor health.
They have 7 children, who all have their own families and work as hired laborers far away from home.
Their Current House
These grandparents currently live in their son's house, which is in Vinh Hung District, Long An Province. The house was built in 2015 and is 30 square meters. The roof is made of coconut leaves; the walls are made of coconut leaves and corrugated iron; the house foundation is made of cement and soil.
Their New House
Their son has agreed for them to construct a small house on his land for them to live in for the rest of their lives. The couple has been wanting to build their own house, but they haven't had the opportunity.
We will be helping them build a new house, and they will contribute about $440 USD to their new home.
