Just before the beginning of Distinctive Patios’ “spring fever”, Rick was part of a team that traveled to Panajachel, Guatemala to help build a concrete house for a single mom and her daughters.
To give you some perspective on the construction practices used….all the blocks were cut by hand with machetes and all concrete was delivered/mixed by hand! Below are several pictures from the trip. The smiling faces help you understand how easy it is to make a real difference in a child’s life and what real poverty is. If you’d like to sponsor a child’s education or help fill some other need, you can contact the Mayan Families organization
. No question….you will get more than you give as you provide hope for the future. One other note….after the trip….Distinctive Patios donated a hand-held grinder to make the work a bit easier.
