Choose HOPE this Christmas
At a time of uncertainty, fear and suffering in our world holding onto Hope is so very important.
At Habitat we choose to put God’s love into action by bringing people of all backgrounds together to build homes, communities and hope. We see hope grow as families begin to build their lives on the solid foundation of a simple home.
Earlier this year I had the joy to see hope grow in Malawi when we built 10 homes as part of Big Build.
Cecilia Kaliytoni (Sissy) lives in Chamadenga Village, when we met her she was living in a house where the roof leaked.
Sissy and her grandchildren were forced to sleep standing up when it rained. They feared that their home could not withstand the rainy season.
I left Malawi hopeful that we can inspire more support for this work, hopeful that people across Northern Ireland would choose hope this Christmas.
We can build a Habitat home in Malawi for £3,500. Homes that mean the whole world for the families who wait and hope.
This Christmas we are asking people to choose hope and donate £35. Every 100 donations means we can build another home, which will deliver the gift of hope so that children like those pictured will have the safety and security they deserve.
Thank you so much for all that you have already done to support our work.
May this Christmas fill you with a fresh sense of hope and if you are able please give whatever you can afford so that hope continues to grow in the lives of those who wait in Malawi.
This year, we are grateful that the Hilti Foundation will be doubling each donation made to our Christmas appeal. This means that more than ever, whatever you can afford will make a huge difference.
