We built our home

Lukáš Turták with his wife Michala are some of the first homeowners in Rankovce.

They built their new house by themselves with assistance from the project Building Hope. Lukáš′s father also helped with the construction as he has experience working construction. Today, the couple lives in the house and step by step they will furnish it as they are able. Lukáš and Michala enjoy their own home and enthusiastically talk about what they have already purchased and furnished and what else they would like to do. They have warmth in the house thanks to the new furnace.  They purchased a kitchen table, have furnished the living room and have obtained many other necessary things, although, as they say, at the beginning they had nothing.

Lukáš is now a skilled brickmason.  He enjoys working construction and he is able to do most things now that are necessary for brickwork. He hopes that the practical skills he acquired building his own home will help him to get a good job in building industry.

Project Building Hope continues to bring hope into many lies. In this year (2014), construction of another ten houses by ten more families is planned, this time in Moldava nad Bodvou.
