Mid Willamette Valley Habitat for Humanity Sends Nine to Nepal
Krave, Katmandu., October 23rd, 2012 is proud to announce 6 volunteers and 3 staff members from Mid-Willamette Valley participated with over 400 volunteers from around the world to build a village in Krave, Katmandu. The volunteers from Mid-Willamette Valley built a home for a family of four. A mother, father and two daughters. Bekasha 4 years old and the youngest daughter who is 5 months old. The two bedroom brick and mud house was completed on Oct 13th, 2012. Habitat for Humanity of the Mid-Willamette Valley would like to thank everyone who helped get them to Nepal and participate in this life changing experience.
A note from our Executive Director Tony Frazier:
I was moved by the outpouring of service from around the world to this tiny developing country. The people groups included the United States, Germany, New Zealand, Australia, Great Britain, Singapore, Korea, and Malaysia. Many nations coming together for so great a cause is a testament to the far reaching work of Habitat for Humanity. This is the kind of experience that forever changes ones world view and, I believe, moves the participant to find that place in the soul that becomes the driving force for positive change as it relates to the value of human life. Habitat is the foundation upon which we build the bridges. If you do one thing before you leave this world, make sure it is to experience life in a developing country where priorities are different, perhaps better aligned with human existence, leave a piece of yourself through service and experience the thrill of touching a soul no matter the face it wears.
Everest Build II, Nepal
After the success of the first Everest Build in 2010, Habitat for Humanity Nepal is once again bringing together partner organizations, corporations and individuals to build homes together with local families in need. In October 2012, hundreds of volunteers from all over the world will join together to shine a light on the scourge of substandard or “poverty” housing and demonstrate what can be accomplished when families, communities and nations come together to build a future where every man, woman and child has a decent place to live.
