Hello Friends and Family!
This summer, I will be participating in a program called Habitat for Humanity. Essentially, this is an international program that gathers volunteers and sends them to various countries, specifically developing ones, to build houses for the less fortunate.
I am very excited to tell you that I will be travelling with a group of volunteers from my school to Romania for 7 days with Habitat for Humanity. More than half the population of Romania (52%) is struggling with overcrowded living conditions. Despite the fact that Romania is part of the European Union, more than 5 million people live in extremely poor conditions, including more than 2 million children. Some 8.5 million people (around 41% of the Romanian population) have no bathroom facilities with access to running water.
To try to address these issues, we will aim to build at least one house while we are in Romania, as houses take a while to build. However, the cost of travelling and completing this program is quite expensive, so I am reaching out to you to request your support so that I can complete this project. Any donation would be awesome. I have a goal to raise EUR 1,850 for my trip. If I happen to raise more than my goal, the funds will go directly to Habitat for Humanity to offset the costs of the program. As a thank you, I will email photos and I hope to make a video after the trip and let you know what the family thinks of their new home. :)
Thank you, have a lovely day!
