Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project 2009 volunteer house photos
The Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project 2009: The Mekong Build united volunteers and families in need of decent, affordable housing in the Mekong region. During the week-long build, you and nearly 3,000 other volunteers joined hands with nearly 166 families in Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and China's Sichuan Province. Your work helped to create a current of change as strong and lasting as the might Mekong River itself.
Our work is far from done.
Nearly 50 million of the Mekong region’s approximately 250 million people live on less than the equivalent of one dollar a day. Most of these families live in unsanitary, unsafe and unhealthy conditions.
Continue to be a “current of change.”
Your continued involvement can have a lasting impact on Habitat for Humanity’s work. Continue to be a part of Habitat for Humanity’s mission to ensure every man, woman and child has a decent place to live, throughout the Mekong and around the world. By making a donation now, you are helping more families have shelter from rain, wind and sun.
