Ricky visited a temporary shelter where 28 deserving families are staying until their new homes are ready. One man has been living with his family in a single, tiny room after his house and thriving restaurant business were demolished by the tsunami. Another family of five has been crowded together, sleeping in hammocks since their home was destroyed.
With the help of volunteers from around the world, Ricky's dream is taking shape. The Ricky Martin Foundation teamed with Habitat for Humanity to start building 250 homes! Ricky's crew put the finishing touches on 60 houses that have been completed so far—and more are on the way. After so much hardship, suffering and loss, each new home gives tsunami survivors a new lease on life.
