Alabbar Enterprises, a parent company for a variety of Retail, F&B and Ecommerce franchise operations across the Middle East and Asia; along with Habitat for Humanity, have launched a three year partnership that provides clean and safe water for thousands of disadvantaged families in Zambia. The partnership started in 2014 and focuses on construction of water kiosks and water pumps, distribution of containers for transporting the water to homes, and education on water management. It is often the obligation of females, mostly young girls, to walk long distances for water, leading to higher rates of absenteeism from school. This project will empower these young girls by giving them the opportunity to pursue an education in order to improve their living conditions.
Credit Suisse, as one of the world’s leading financial services providers, has committed itself to the improvement of poverty housing through generous donations as well as through the enthusiastic volunteerism of its staff throughout the world. Between 2012 and 2016, Credit Suisse and its generous employees significantly contributed to Habitat´s disaster response and risk reduction efforts upon three major catastrophes: Japan Earthquake and Tsunami in 2012, Typhoon Haiyan in Philippines in 2013 and Nepal Earthquakes of 2015. Credit Suisse’s support funded not only distribution of shelter repair kits, construction of disaster resistant homes and a community centre, but also supported training of local construction experts that will be providing technical assistance and enable hundreds of families in need to rebuild their homes in a resilient way and be better prepared for future disasters.

In July 2016, Roche, the world’s leading research-based healthcare company, and Habitat for Humanity signed a two-year partnership agreement to help vulnerable families affected by the 2015 earthquakes in Nepal. By the end of the project, at least 500 families from the Nuwakot district, will have built, rehabilitated or retrofitted their homes and by building back safer and stronger structures the families will be better prepared for future disasters.
