Home Reparations & Refurbishment
Destitute families and abandoned elderly live in rundown houses, at the mercy of the rain, wind, and storms. The bad conditions affect particularly their health whereas they suffer continuously from cold and pneumonia, and other illnesses.
BASSMA works throughout the year to repair, renovate and refurbish the rundown homes of deprived families and elderly people, making sure that they become healthy places to live in.
It includes the following services:
- Rebuild of the basic infrastructure
- Reparations and Restorations
- Painting, cleaning, and pesticides
- Refurbishments, from carpets and couches to household appliances, and other necessary equipment: Single beds, double and single mattresses, bed sheets, sofas, ovens, closets, fridges, washing machines, televisions, kitchen wares (incl. pressure cookers) and vacuum cleaners.
- Payment of Rent, Electricity, and Water Bills
The renovation project is an important component of BASSMA's family rehabilitation program since it guarantees security and safety for stable family life.
