New Habitat CEO visits Africa and the Middle East

Jonathan Reckford, the new CEO for Habitat for Humanity International visited Ghana, South Africa, and Egypt in January as part of his introduction to our work in Africa and the Middle East.

I have heard many stories of how this transformation has taken place, and I am blessed to be a part of it.

Here he shares some of his impressions:
