Constructing a road leading to the village's cemetery

Greetings from Levo, where we are making a village’s dream finally come true! This village was built almost 100 years ago after families fled the Ottoman Empire’s Genocide during WWI. The people of the villages have always struggled to visit their cemetery as it is in a steep valley that never had a road. This often led to families not burying their loved ones for days during the rainy and snowy seasons. With no government assistance, they looked to Shlama. We’ve completed the construction of a 300-meter-long road that will make driving to their cemetery possible. We expect work to finish at the end of the week! Thank you from the homeland 💙
