Habitat for Humanity Build

As many of you will know, Oliver and Darren Sampson went to Kenya in July to help build a house, with Habitat for Humanity, for a grandma looking after her two grandchildren and niece.  

Here is the house she lived in before they arrived.

And here is the house they built, when they had to leave.

And here is the house after the local builders finished it off.
