photos - repairs - part 3

The food depot is the last room inside the house that needed earthquake crack repairs. Pastor Pierre and the cement boss are chiseling out the cracks in preparation to put in new mortar.

The food depot is a small room and it didn't take long to start putting mortar into the cracks.

The guys were excited to see the house finished painting and had a lot of enthusiasm painting. They all took turns.

This student from the neighborhood is using the chalkboard preparing for the state exams for 6eme AF, which is the graduating year for elementary school. The new painted house sure looks a lot different now! It needed painting.

The color we used to paint the outside of the house is called "terre cuite" (cooked earth) and the ceiling and roof border is "peche" (peach).
