The average cost of building a safe and secure Habitat home in Africa is now approximately €6,450. This year we want to raise the funds to build FIFTEEN homes with access to water and sanitation in three of our partner countries. This will support fifteen families to improve their lives, with the safety and security that a Habitat home provides and will ensure access to clean water and sanitation for the wider communities too.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected us all. However the 1.8 billion people with inadequate housing, are still most at risk. As governments around the world called on their populations to stay home, for too many vulnerable communities this did not provide safety or security.

A study has shown that families living in Habitat homes can have a 44% reduction in rates of respiratory illnesses.

It is estimated that the pandemic has plunged more than 100 million additional people into severe poverty and threatens to undo decades of progress in international development.

As we cautiously move out of lockdown, and the vaccine roll-out beings hope of brighter days ahead, the same cannot be said for the most vulnerable. Many poorer countries will not achieve mass COVID-19 immunisation until at least 2024. More than ever, a safe home and access to adequate water and sanitation services are essential to a family’s health.

To raise funds for these life-changing projects, we’re asking YOU to take on a virtual journey! Get outside and complete a physical challenge to help us reach our target of 10,000 kilometres travelled!

The distance from Ireland to Addis Ababa then Lilongwe and Lusaka is around 10,000km, so we want our volunteers, supporters and donors to help us get there this year!

Walk for a window, dander for a door or hike for a home, get sponsored and support the most vulnerable communities in Ethiopia, Malawi and Zambia!

Sign up today to take part in our Home Safe Home campaign! SHARE the campaign & ENCOURAGE your family and friends, school, church, workplace and local community to get involved too.
