For those of you who read our post — A dream deferred: Political unrest delays Habitat build in Lesotho — you can imagine how excited we were to open an email from Kelle Shultz, Director of Habitat for Humanity Knoxville. In that email were pictures forwarded from Setoko Hlabathe, the Habitat Host Coordinator in Lesotho — pictures of the now-completed house in a little village near Maseru, Lesotho.
Many people in Lesotho gave it their all to complete this home, built entirely by hand of concrete block and mud. The project began with Habitat for Humanity, but was interrupted by an attempted coup to oust the prime minister of Lesotho.
But now, we’ve come full circle. The house is finished. The family has a new home. And three deserving children face blue skies and white clouds as they look to the future from their doorstep! It’s a new day!
