Building a Home for Maria

*Price includes the total cost with all expenses covered, such as flights, accommodation, meals, and excursions. If you are interested in this trip, please get in touch with us here.

Join us on a life-changing mission trip to Las Flores, Belize, in honor of the compassionate Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, who dedicated themselves to serving this community in collaboration with San Miguel Arcangel Missions. We invite you to be part of a volunteer experience that will make a lasting impact.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Lisa, Maria Vargas’ home in Las Flores was devastated. The roof was partially blown off, leaving her vulnerable to the elements. But with our temporary repairs, we provided some relief. However, Maria’s home faces even more challenges. The floor consists of rock and mud, covered with worn-out linoleum. Gaps between the wood walls expose her to the elements, and the roof continues to leak.

Here’s where you come in. Maria has a piece of property on which we can build a new home, and there is already a septic system in place. We have an incredible opportunity to construct a small 20 x 16 house for Maria—a project that will restore her dignity, security, and comfort.

By volunteering your time and skills, you can help build a sanctuary for Maria and transform her life. Whether you have experience in construction or simply a heart full of compassion, your contribution is invaluable. Together, we can make a tangible difference and provide Maria with a safe and stable home.

This mission trip is not just about physical labor; it’s an opportunity for personal growth and cultural exchange. As you work alongside local community members, you’ll forge deep connections and gain a profound understanding of their resilience and spirit. Together, we will honor the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth and their legacy of selfless service.

Join us on this transformative journey to Las Flores, Belize, and be part of a mission that transcends borders and brings hope to those in need. Let’s create a brighter future for Maria and the entire community.

Together, let’s build hope and change lives in Las Flores, Belize!
