Have you ever wondered how you build a floor? Well in Congo, it seems there are three steps to the process…

Step 1

Step 2

Lay the large stones in place and cover with gravel.

Laying Bricks

Step 3

Finish it with cement.

How we’ve helped

The $500 we sent in January 2014 was used to lay a new floor in one of the classrooms of the Aru Nursing Institute. It paid for 7 pick-up loads of stones and some plywood for the ceiling of the same classroom.
