Simon, 66, is one of Habitat for Humanity Haiti’s beneficiaries in Pestel, a community in the South of Haiti in the Grande Anse department. Simon tells us “I like that they didn’t just give us money or a house, we contributed to building our home, which made me feel proud. I was proud to be able to show my kids and grandkids the value of hard work and that I can contribute to my own well being. For that, I am grateful.” Simon’s house is one of the many that was greatly affected by Hurricane Matthew, and was part of our disaster relief efforts. Your donations help beneficiaries like Simon get back on their feet in a home that will now withstand future hurricanes and environmental catastrophes.
