75,000 unique stories in Guatemala

GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala (July 21, 2015) — Maria, Hember, Guadalupe, Kelibert, María Antonieta… they are all part of the 75,000 families that Habitat for Humanity Guatemala has helped to achieve their dream of adequate housing since its founding in 1979.

Their inspiring stories are being reflected on the web and social networks thanks to the 75,000 Unique Stories project, which also seeks to raise 750,000 quetzales (about US100,000) to continue supporting more Guatemalan families who need a safe and adequate place to live.

For this purpose, we need the help of volunteers who, with their hands and hearts, will build a better Guatemala. To participate, write to [email protected], call 4740-6236 to request your Habitat piggy bank and share with friends and family through Facebook and Twitter.

The celebration of Habitat Guatemala’s 75,000 housing solutions will be held in November 2015.
