With 1.6 billion people around the world already living without adequate shelter, the COVID-19 pandemic is threatening to turn a crisis into a catastrophe.
In this time, when a home serves as the front line of defence against the virus, Habitat for Humanity India needs your help to prevent millions of additional people from falling into substandard living conditions that make them more vulnerable to the virus.
Housing is the vaccine that insulates the poor.
With your help we can create not only more of the healthy homes that help stop the spread of the virus today, but also healthier housing markets that can lead the way to a sustainable recovery tomorrow.
We’re prioritizing communities with low-income families, and vulnerable people who wake up each day fearing they might lose their home. The uncertainty so many of us feel today, these families have felt for a lifetime — if not generations.
We are needed now more than ever. And now more than ever, we need you.
As communities start to emerge from the crisis, we need to work together to change the global narrative from a feeling of helplessness to hope. Now is the time to get involved. Now is the time to lead and chart the path forward.
Our Homes, Communities, Hope + You global campaign will be anchored by four areas:
- Healthy Homes
- Access to Secure Shelter
- Housing Market and Economic Recovery
- Advocacy for Adequate, Affordable Housing
We work in more than 70 countries around the world to advocate for those among us who simply need a hand up, but we cannot do our work without your help.
We invite you to join Habitat for Humanity India in what we do best - building strength, stability and hopeful futures.
