Thumbnails - El Salvador Habitat for Humanity Build - November/December, 2008

The project site is located on the outskirts of Sonsonate, El Salvador in a small village called Piedras Pachas. Sonsonate is a small city situated West of San Salvador. The Habitat Global Village Team was made up of twelve Canadians, mostly from Alberta, but with members from Ontario, Nova Scotia and BC. The build project was a blitz build of five houses on one site and was Habitat El Salvador’s Navidad en Acción (Christmas in Action) Blitz Build which included a large number of local volunteers during the first week in December.
