Building Homes :-: Building Hope
The mission of Project Mercy is to construct solid and secure houses and improve the quality of life for impoverished families in Mexico.
Paula Claussen CNN Hero
In January of 1991 a friend invited Paula Claussen to make the short trip from her home in San Diego, California, across the border to Tijuana, Mexico, to donate clothing to people in need. Claussen didn’t expect that day to change the course of her life.
“I was shocked by the conditions that I saw down there,” she said. “It was something that touched me very deeply, and I determined to try to do something about it. “.
As a direct result Project Mercy was created to improve living conditions and eventually, to build solid homes. The nonprofit has constructed more than 1,600 free homes for people living in Tijuana’s most desperate communities.
Adequate shelter is a basic human need
Every house built not only provides a solid and secure home for a family in need, but also hope for a better future.
