Family: Agus Salim

Family: Agus Salim

Agus Salim works as a street vendor. He travels from village to village selling noodle to earn an income. After the earthquake he made many attempts to find other work but was unsuccessful. His monthly imcome is around U$60. After the earthquake he was forced to send his wife and son to a relative’s house in another province. He was very distraught having to send his family away to live in a bamboo shelter that had a plastic roof but their own home was uninhabitable for his family. He has managed to visit them once a month. He looks forward to any opportunity that will enable him to have a secure home that will reunite him with his family.

This family is one of 30 families that have been selected to have a dome home built in the areas devastated by the recent earthquakes in Indonesia. These families have been unable to obtain any government assistance and are in dire need of sustainable housing. Domes For The World, due to stockpiles of supplies that has been procured for this type of project, is able to build this family a safe home for $3,000.00. These homes are safe, sustainable structures that are able to provide these families shelter from natural disasters that this country has been plagued by. A donation of $3,000 will give this family a new home and a new start.

In return for your donation, aside of the obvious tax deduction, there will be…

…a permanent plaque in the dome home with your or your families name

…pictures and reports of the dome home as it is constructed

…peace of mind that you provided one of the 3 basic human needs to a family who desperately needed it.
