It's every family's dream to have their own place to call home. Sadly this is beyond the reach of many Filipinos - especially the underprivileged. A house gives dignity and protection. For many, a house is also a place for business and livelihood. Based on government data the Philippines has a backlog of 5.6 million houses in its housing program for the poor. For those who are fortunate enough to have a small dwelling, their challenge is to keep their house liveable. But this can be difficult. APPEND and its members are responding to this need by providing assistance for the enterprising poor (micro-entrepreneurs) to build or improve their houses incrementally - one wall, one room, one window, one roof at a time. This gift helps build a square meter of a house to help a family find a safe haven, and a place to sustain their basic needs.
This gift supports communities in the Philippines and costs 2520 points on JellyChip.
The target charity is APPEND.
