Many people know about San Diego Habitat’s mission to help provide homes to local families in need, but did you know that your donations also help make an impact on families in need around the world? Each year, San Diego Habitat for Humanity provides a tithe of unrestricted contributions to Habitat for Humanity International to be used toward home building efforts internationally.
This past year, Habitat provided a tithe to Habitat for Humanity Romania, supporting the Homes for a Secure Future project. Through this project, thirty homes will be built in the next five years for families in Oradea who have been evicted from their homes by the government because of the continued post-communist privatization. These include young families, elderly people with no shelter, and single mothers and their children.
Local and international volunteers numbering in the hundreds have been giving their time to make this project possible and have already helped build two homes and started the foundation and walls of six others. Work on the next twenty homes will begin in September. Because all the homes will be built together in one area, this project will truly be creating a Habitat community, and a strong bond between all those involved. Your continued donations have helped make this possible.
