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. This October, I’m grabbing a hammer, strapping on a tool belt, and securing a hard hat to help build homes in Honduras. Why? Because everyone deserves a decent place to live.
You can make a difference too - by contributing towards my goal, you will ensure that Habitat families have a place to call home. Any support, no matter the amount, helps!
Way to go, Rachel! Looking forward to hearing about all your experiences in Honduras!
