This October, I will be traveling to Honduras to volunteer for Habitat for Humanity.
Did you know that in Honduras 68.2% of the population lives in poverty, of which 44.6% are extremely poor? 38% of households do not have electricity and 14% do not have water and sanitation systems. The housing deficit in Honduras is around 57%, out of which 30% is quantitative deficit meaning that the construction of 350,000 new homes is required, while 70% it is qualitative deficit, i.e. homes that require improvement of some kind, about 770,000 homes.
Habitat for Humanity Chicago is coming together with Habitat Honduras to do our part in making a difference. Not only are we grabbing hammers and strapping on tool belts - we're raising the money that keeps construction going for homes.
You can make a difference too by contributing towards my goal, ensuring more families have a place to call home.
I appreciate any support you can give - even a small donation!
