Jesus calls all of us to service...
Hi my name is Kirk Guillory and I live in Lake Charles, Louisiana. A few years ago I decided to give back to those in need and with the help of Food For The Poor and generous donors like you, we were able to complete the building of St. Peter Claver Village of Hope in Jinotega, Nicaragua.
My current mission is to collect enough money to build 10 double homes for struggling families in El Salvador. I will keep you informed each step of the way. You can check back to this page to see total funds and pictures of progress.

Families in El Salvador need our help
Santa Cruz de la Vega is a community located at the bottom of a steep hill in San Francisco Chinameca, a municipality of El Salvador, located in the department of La Paz, on the north by Lake Ilopango.
It's common to see homes made of mud, bamboo, metal sheeting, and plastic. Rainfall rushes in the community in the form of flash floods filled with garbage, debris, and other materials caught up in the current. Families struggle to keep their homes from being destroyed or damaged. Everyday seems like a fight because the old plastic and metal sheets do not give them much protection from the rain and wind.
I have pledged to provide 10 double-unit homes to the Santa Cruz de la Vega Community Development project. The homes will consist of two bedrooms, a living room, a personal sanitation unit, and water component.
With your help, we can give these families back their dignity and provide a lasting, durable, and safe place for them to call home.
