Project Justification: Why do you need the project?
For the health of the families that lives in these homes. These adobe homes are currently in poor condition to host a healthy family.
Supervisor’s Note: These houses are structurally sound but the walls are made of adobe brick (mix of compacted soil, sand, and cement) that if left exposed can house Triatomine bugs also known as “assassin” or “kissing” bugs know to cause a serious illness called Chagas disease. See the Center for Disease Control website to learn about Chagas disease. http://www.cdc.gov/parasites/chagas/gen_info/index.html
