I need your help rebuilding my home to avoid constant flooding and hardships. I want to help neighbors prevent harmful diseases and infections from reptiles. Please help. 

Each year Thai people in the Northern Thailand suffered from nasty, and germ-filled flooding waters during the monsoon season from July to October for 15 to 21 days. During these periods an averaging of 202 mm (8") of rain falls per month. River and lakes overflow and the water rises to levels up to three feet above the foundations of homes causing continuous flooding every year.  

Our house is currently situated in a low lying area below the street level. So we are dealing with flooding daily due to continuous heavy rains. We are not only suffering with flooded rain waters, we are also suffered from muds, unknown disease, and dangerous poisonous reptiles that swam through the stream. Please be mindful that many homes in the neighborhood have no indoor toilets. We have tried different ways for many years to combat the flooding and have come to the conclusion that the best thing to do is raise the house above the flood level. My family has suffered long enough and it's time for us to bring down our nearly 40 years old home and rebuild. For this to even be possible, we need help. So I'm asking for donations to rebuilt the home for my family. As the home is rebuilt proper drainage can be put in place to prevent flooding in the future.Flooded room
