Paul and Pete Build Homes in Vietnam

Paul and Pete Build Homes in Vietnam

About This Campaign

The Dong Thap province, about a 100 miles from Ho Chi Minh, is the third-highest rice producer in Vietnam, but almost a quarter of the population lives below the poverty line. Most houses have temporary stilt raised frames made of local construction materials and are located along the river bank. Due to the annual floods and poor construction, many of these houses are damaged and require continual maintenance.

In November, father and son team, Pete and Paul Christopher will be doing something about it, by building 21 homes, along with 237 volunteers from 6 counties.

We are asking for your help in raising $5000, enough to pay for an entire home in Vietnam. Your donation will NOT be used for our travel expenses, it will all be used to build homes. Your gift will be made to Lake Agassiz Habitat but will be tithed to Habitat Vietnam.

Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity

Campaign to Support Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity

Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity (LAHFH) is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities and hope. LAHFH is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all. We partner with local businesses, churches and volunteers to help build homes with qualifying families. Volunteers provide most of the labor, and individual and corporate donors provide money and materials to build Habitat houses. Most importantly, partner families play a large role in the building of the home. They invest 250 hours of labor - "sweat equity" - into building their homes and the homes of others. They also make interest-free mortgage payments which go into a fund that is used to build more houses.
