Jacqueline Builds is a one of its kind campaign launched by Habitat for Humanity India in association with Bollywood celebrity and humanitarian Jacqueline Fernandez.
After the recent floods in Kerala 2018, Jacqueline Fernandez came forward in support of the families affected by the floods. In addition to her personal donation, she mobilised fans to donate funds for relief intervention in the immediate aftermath of the floods. To assist in the rebuilding of Kerala, Jacqueline will travel to Aluva in January 2019 for a Habitat for Humanity India event 'Jacqueline Builds Edition II', to build homes with flood-affected families, along with volunteers from all walks of life.
Habitat for Humanity India is seeking to help 500 flood-affected families by building disaster-resilient Habitat homes in the districts of Alappuzha, Ernakulum and Thrissur.
Jacqueline reached out to other celebrities such as Hrithik Roshan, John Abraham, Akshay Kumar, Arjun Kapoor, Remo D'Souza, and Shraddha Kapoor, who showed their solidarity to the campaign by signing bricks; a symbol of a strong foundation.
Previously in 2016, Jacqueline visited Chennai to start the first Jacqueline Builds, in response to the floods in Tamil Nadu. She worked along with 150 volunteers from corporate organisations and schools across India, to build homes with families who were affected by the floods. She was instrumental in spreading awareness about the campaign and fundraising for the relief intervention. From leveraging social media platforms to meeting the contributors to motivate them to support the families through Habitat, she went all out to gather support to provide shelter to these families.
We look forward to partnering with her again for Jacqueline Builds Edition II in Kerala, rebuilding this beautiful state - God's own country!
