VIETNAM BIG BUILD 2016 (October 2016)

Habitat for Humanity Vietnam’s Big Build, October 3-7, 2016, saw 194 international volunteers from New Zealand, USA, Australia, Hong Kong, Vietnam, and the Philippines join hands with 10 local volunteers and home partners in building 20 houses for poor families in Tam Nong district, Phu Tho Province.
They worked in the two communes of Huong Nha and Xuan Quang during the build in nearly 100 degree weather throughout the week. These new homes will give these poor families the chance to live in safe, secure homes.
Habitat for Humanity Vietnam, is celebrating its 15th anniversary, officially beginning as a branch office in Da Nang city in January 2001. As of December 2015, HFH Vietnam has enabled more than 13,100 low-income Vietnamese families to improve their living conditions through decent homes, clean water and safe sanitation and post-disaster reconstruction and repairs. In addition, HFH Vietnam has provided training in disaster preparedness, financial education, hygiene practices, and construction skills, among others, to more than 65,000 individuals. Habitat for Humanity Vietnam currently has projects in the northern, central and southern parts of Vietnam.
