House construction updates
This year Dach überm Kopf was able to provide more than 60 homes to indigent families. This means that 2014 more than 360 indigent adults and children were provided a stable living environment. Due to an ongoing increase of prices for building materials, the price per house was increased in November. Currently a donation of € 2.800,- covers construction for a house of up to 6 indigent family members. » To the information brochure
Beds for the orphans
This year Dach überm Kopf was able to supply the orphanages with beds and sheets for every single orphin. For almost every orphin this is the first time they are able to sleep in a bed rather than on the moist floor wrapped in blankets. During the monsoon time in Kerala the floor gets very cold during the night and because of high humidity water starts to collect on the ground.
Varghese Thaniyath back from India
Varghese Thaniyath returned safely to Austria after personally handing over keys to families who were homeless prior to moving in to their newly built homes. This year Dach überm Kopf was able to provide more than 60 homes for indigent families. Varghese Thaniyath was accompanied by 25 donors and volunteers who were able to experience the poverty and the difference Dach überm Kopf makes in Kerala first hand.
