Sandra and Marlon’s house – casa 148

Sandra and Marlon waited more than three years for their house. They are grateful to say good-bye to their old plastic hut.

Meghan Haslam, 4Walls co-founder and former Peace Corps volunteer, was in Nicaragua in December to help build Sandra and Marlon’s house.

“Everyone got involved,” said Meghan. “Even 3-year-old Elder helped uncurl and feed wire to me for clipping. Our mason, Juan Dionicio, the ever-patient teacher, showed 11-year-old Jarison how to wire the rebar for the concrete pillars. Neighbors and cousins joined in too.”
