One in four people in our world live in poor housing. Families are forced to live in places that are cold and damp, overcrowded or do not have a door that locks.
Simple homes save lives. Families are healthier, children do better in school and parents have a chance to earn a stable income.
Every day, Habitat for Humanity works beside families to build, renovate or repair their home in 70 countries around the world.
In 2018, you can be a part of changing a families life forever. Read our stories of impact below and learn how you can support our work that goes on every day.
Bertha and her son can now enjoy their home, built as part of Habitat Malawi’s Orphans and Vulnerable Groups program. The poorest are worst affected, including the 1.4 million children who are vulnerable, largely as a result of the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
Liben and his wife are both ex-leprosy patients who are physically affected by the disease. They used to live in a plastic sheet house with their 5 children in Ethiopia, before they became Habitat home-owners.
