Safe homes save lives
The rapid, global spread of the COVID-19 pandemic reveals the extent of the global housing crisis and the vital importance of safe homes.
“Home has rarely been more of a life or death situation,” said Leilani Farha, UN Special Rapporteur on the right to adequate housing.
Around the world, in the poorest communities, Habitat is implementing emergency COVID responses. We have already delivered over 200,000 emergency hygiene kits in India, we are building an emergency centre in Romania to ensure medical teams are able to serve their community of 65,000. In Zambia, where 36% of the population do not have access to a basic water service we will focus on community education and hygiene a well as ensuring access to clean water. At our housing project site in Makululu, we will sink a communal solar powered borehole to supply safe water for the whole community.
Safe homes save lives. Now more than ever we need your support. Thank you in advance.
