Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project 2009: Qionglai City, China's Sichuan Province
Carter Work Project volunteers helped build a series of multi-story, urban housing units in Qionglai City in China's southwestern Sichuan province. Nearly 200 volunteers constructed 20 Habitat for Humanity units as part of Habitat's Qionglai City Project. These housing units will house hundreds of families who lost their land on the rural outskirts of the expanding city as their holdings were consolidated for other purposes. Without the work of Habitat, the families would have no prospect of a safe, decent, affordable home.
