6 International Homes Built
Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity has been a partner of Habitat for Humanity Guatemala since 2009. Throughout this eight year partnership, the affiliate has tithed $56,420 towards reducing the housing deficit in Guatemala, impacting families through the construction of homes, the creation of smokeless stoves, the donation of water filters, and the act of building hygienic latrines. Today in Guatemala, there is a housing deficit of over 1.6 million homes that must be improved or constructed. Earthquakes, tropical storms, political turmoil, extreme poverty, and problems with land ownership, as well as legal and financial aspects, all play a role in this housing deficit.Because of your support, we have been able to help with new construction and improvements to existing homes. We also have supported families in extreme poverty through projects such as the Healthy Kit and along with technical assistance through training. Our tithe to Habitat Guatemala has been part of the solution to help more than 110,000 families have to improve their living conditions, which means a direct contribution to reducing the housing deficit by 6.06%.
