Asian Tour Golf Stars Build with Habitat for Humanity India
On 12th March 2018 Asian Tour champions Shiv Kapur, Chiragh Kumar along with their wives partnered with Habitat for Humanity India to assist Munna Devi to build a home for her family in Begumpur, New Delhi. They were joined by 2015 Asian Development Tour (ADT) Order of Merit winner and Habitat for Humanity advocate Casey O’Toole of the United States.
Munna Devi is a mother of two daughters and one son. Widowed six years ago, Munna Devi is determined to give her children a better future. “We were touched by the support of our New Delhi and international visitors who helped build our home. We are eager to complete our new home and cannot wait to move in,” said Munna Devi with a smile on her face.
