The Fund channels this aid from donors to the needy recipients with minimum overheads. All gifts are monitored to ensure they are used in line with the stated need.

Habitat for Humanity
Every morning one third of the world’s population, that’s two billion people, will wake up in appalling poverty, squalid, spirit-crushing poverty. Most were born into those conditions and many will die in them, too many will die as a consequence of them.
Poverty housing damages people’s lives in so many ways. It’s dirty, smelly and often unsafe, it affects people’s health and wellbeing; their children’s education; their employment prospects. But most of all, poverty housing traps people in poverty and robs them of hope and opportunity. It oppresses the soul and keeps the poorest people poor.
In 1976 Habitat for Humanity was founded with the sole aim of tackling poverty housing on a global scale. Thirty years later we are working in 92 countries around the world and have built 225,000 homes in partnership with people in need of simple, decent housing.
