It is always nice to look back and remind ourselves of some of the construction projects we have completed. Here is a list and some photos of the construction projects Helping Hands Unlimited has been involved with since we began in 2010.
El Peñon Church Project
Helping Hands Unlimited had some teams help with the construction of a church in the town of El Peñon (near Barahona). The church was built to replace a church destroyed by Tropical Storm Noel (2007). The new building was constructed to serve many purposes. The building was constructed strong enough to withstand a category five hurricane. El Peñon is located near the coast and feels the effects of storms passing by the area. The building was officially opened in late 2010.
Emmanuel School / Orville Fricke School Classroom Project in San Juan
Helping Hands Unlimited’s next project was the construction of 2 classrooms and an office for the school. Construction began in January 2011, and the project was completed in 2012. The classrooms add much flexibility for the school and also serve for some adult education classes on evenings and weekends. Donors also helped equip and furnish the classrooms.
Good Shepard Church in San Juan
Helping Hands Unlimited provided some help to complete the second floor of the church. The new space was used to house the pastor and his wife.
A Christian School in Barrio George
We sent a team to this school in Barrio George in La Romana to put the finishing touches on this project. Our part was to pour the concrete sidewalks and paint the building, inside and out. Before we left, the classrooms were being used.
The El Toro is nearly complete. Hopefully, classes will begin in August 2017. There are still a few minor projects associated with this project that we need to complete. We still need some funds to complete them. Please click here if you would like to help.
