Fatima, originally from the Philippines, has been living in Ireland for many years. But last month she returned to her home country to help rebuild homes that had been destroyed by Typhoon Haiyan. 

Today, she tells her story on Habitat’s blog:

“At the moment, many of the locals are still living in temporary settlements. Through Habitat For Humanity, their aspirations will come to reality - that one day, through their own share of hard work, they shall have a decent place to live, a house they can proudly call their own...and make it a home.”

Safe travels to our first overseas team of 2015 departing for the Philippines today. They’ll be building safe and decent homes alongside families affected by Typhoon Haiyan.

Pictured is Aislinn Hayes from Limerick who said:
"Habitat gives me the opportunity to really make a difference in a physical and safe way, rather than just throwing money at a far away problem. The people of the Philippines have experienced awful tragedy as a result of the recent typhoons; hopefully this trip will give a boost to at least some families and local volunteers over there.”

Poverty housing has detrimental effects on a family’s health. At Habitat for Humanity, we build safe and decent homes with access to water and sanitation facilities to alleviate these health hazards. http://bit.ly/1z7TULM

Keelan and Emma are gearing up to build decent and affordable homes for single parent families in Romania this Easter. The girls were speaking to the Liffey Champion about the impact young people can make with Habitat for Humanity Ireland. You can also help create decent housing opportunities for low-income families by signing up to Habitat’s Summer Youth Build bringing 16-17 year olds to Romania this June: http://bit.ly/1KdRCBg

"When researching the impact of Habitat’s work on people’s lives in Zambia, I was both uplifted and utterly depressed. The anguish suffered by these families was only matched by the joy when they were given hope by Habitat for Humanity."
As we say farewell to Eoin, our Development Intern, take a look at his reflection of his time here with Habitat. http://bit.ly/1KOZpWl

The ripple effect of a home extends into the wider community. Habitat homes help to regenerate areas that are often impoverished. Our efforts break down barriers and establish vibrant neighbourhoods. See the impact of a home on communities here: http://bit.ly/1vBysUK

Housing need takes many forms and it can be seen everywhere in the world. Behind every example of need, every fact or figure about housing and poverty, there are families — families who simply need Habitat for Humanity’s hand-up to help them have a decent place to live.

The High School team are preparing to volunteer with Habitat in Malawi this April. The dedicated students will help to pick up the pieces after the damage caused by torrential rains. They will help build homes and hope alongside some of the families most in need in the country: http://bit.ly/1zBQ96s

At the core of Habitat’s mission is the conviction that access to affordable shelter is a basic human right.  We are committed to working with people of all backgrounds, races and religions in the fight against poverty. Poverty housing isn’t exclusive to a certain race, nation or religion. It’s a global issue. 
This week is World interfaith Harmony Week. Find out what we do here: http://bit.ly/1KjvKVa

“When I began my internship in July I didn’t really know what to expect; my Manager told me it would be very varied, and she was dead right.  Even now at the end of it, it’s hard to describe all of the different things I was involved in. Habitat for Humanity Ireland is quite a small team, but don’t underestimate it for its size. This team did big things in the 6 months I was with them.”
