When we started we did not really expect the amount of help that we received from all over India, hence the second edition of ‘Jacqueline builds’ for Kerala was but natural. Our small support with only help to not only rebuild their homes but also their lives, in a way changing bringing some positivity around. The most important thing in this initiative is we start from the bottom, right from carrying the bricks to putting cement and constructing a whole new place which they can be known as Home. The happiness they get and the relief they get as they again will be having a shelter to live under to be with their family is priceless"
