Building a wall...raising fish

Almost done with this section...

Yesterday the team put up the forms for making two sections of the security wall around the Casa de Fe property. Today was cement mixing and hauling, shoveling gravel and rocks and filling the forms. As the local workers (maestros) and team members filled the forms, they continued upwards, adding more forms on the “business side” of the wall. Most of the day it rained. I was able to take some pictures when it wasn’t raining. The two sections of wall erected yesterday were filled with rocks and cement today. Tomorrow the forms will be removed and two more sections erected to get ready for more cement and rocks.

As mentioned yesterday the team cleaned out the two tilapia ponds, refilled them and replaced the fish. Bob and Justin donated enough money to purchase at least 800 Tilapia fry and they were added to the ponds this afternoon. Hopefully with time, they will able to harvest tilapia to supplement the children’s diet.

Have a great day,

Bobber
