Work continues in the Gulf

p1010814.jpgPlenty Gulf Recovery Program Director, Tony Sferlazza, has returned to Arabi, Louisiana which is adjacent to the Lower Ninth Ward where, with the assistance of Plenty volunteer and electrician, Carl Evertson, he has been helping to install new electrical systems for homes getting repaired and the St. Bernard Parish Community Center. In the photo you can see Tony (on the right) and Carl at the St. Bernard Parish Community Center. Although FEMA has decreed that the trailers they gave people to live in two years ago after Katrina are unfit for habitation due to high levels of toxic chemicals in the construction materials, most people are still in their trailers because there is nowhere for them to go and the government has yet to provide the bulk of the funding promised to residents to help them renovate their flooded homes.
