Building stronger families

The Booths’ three-year-old had a persistent skin rash which has now disappeared, and their four-year-old son, who has had respiratory problems, has seen a drastic reduction in the number of visits to hospital which they endured over past winters. Patricia now feels so secure that she has applied to study paramedicine, furthering her education and career prospects. These positive changes in health and education weren’t possible when the family was expending so much effort and worry on their children’s poor health which was brought about by the terrible conditions of their rental property. More than shelter, Habitat’s programmes build stronger families, improved health, and fundamentally change the foundation of a family.
