The Lamina Project

Part of our Rotary funds are gong to buy lamina. You might know this as corrugated steel but here it is very thin. There is a great need for this material to redo leaky roofs. Because we can only provide so much material the girls of the Casita Women’s Center had prepared a list of the most needy.  A family might get one , two or three sheets even though they really need more. The lamina was brought to a storage yard and the next morning the call went out through I am not sure what communications network and the women showed up to get their allotment. Shelley, Colleen, Ellen and Daphne joined the chaos to make sure everyone got their share.  The sheets are not too heavy but when you have three of them they are.  It was quite a site to see the women with sheets of lamia on their heads heading up the mountain.  Our Rotary team will go to some of the homes to help with the installation.

Sheets of lamina start their journey up the mountain.

    What is your altitude ?

    • The town is above 5000 feet plus probably another 1000 when we walk to the top. We sea level dwellers are sucking a lot of air.

    Sad to hear about the plight of the abandoned women and children. Amazing to see your group in action and glad I got to meet you all at the airport – what a difference 9 people can make! Love the pictures and the humour you are finding in your work. Bless You!
