A lack of donor funding is jeopardizing plans for a Dayton, Ohio home being built for the Guinness Book of World Record's oldest living conjoined twins, reports the Dayton Daily News.

"We have empty hands that are willing to work, but we need materials to put in their hands," says Pete Andrews, the founder and president of Christian Youth Corps Inc., a Machias, NY-based charity overseeing the effort.

Since the project's January announcement, only $1,000 out of the $30,000 fundraising goal has been raised to remodel and add-on to a home for the 58-year-old twins, Ronnie and Donnie Galyon. The twins' abnormal growth patterns are causing more discomfort as they age and they are in need of drastic home improvements to continue living independently.
