"Carter Work Project in Nepal cancelled due to shortage of fuel and essential supplies in the country"
ATLANTA (Oct. 8, 2015) – Habitat for Humanity International regrets to announce the cancellation of this year’s Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project, formerly scheduled to take place November 1-6, 2015, in the Chitwan District of Nepal.
As reported by news media, Nepal has been experiencing civil unrest due to the country’s recent announcement of its new constitution. Habitat has been closely monitoring the situation and new circumstances have proven to be safety risks for volunteers and staff. Currently, many goods and materials coming into the country—including gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and cooking fuel, as well as food and medical supplies—have been halted or slowed to a critical point, hindering Habitat’s capacity to effectively and safely execute the planned project.
Integrated construction management firm, Dacon Philippines, signified their commitment last September 22 to contribute almost Php 500,000 toward building homes with Habitat for Humanity Philippines for families affected by the 2013 Bohol earthquake.
MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Habitat for Humanity Philippines officially launched its Dream Builder campaign which is the organization’s monthly-giving program. This wonderful occasion was held at The 26th Street Bistro by The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf.
The Dream Builder program aspires to create sustainable communities by providing affordable and decent homes to live. It is called the "Dream Builder" program because it is the dream of every Filipino family to have a decent and safe home, and Habitat for Humanity strives to make these dreams come true through the support of their donors.
