Habitat for Humanity

A talk by David Clare

'One in five people across the world live in slums and substandard housing, locking them into a grinding cycle of poverty. This lack of housing negatively affects their health and well-being, educational prospects, and ability to make a living. And  David Clare  from  Habitat for Humanity  , in the UK, intervenes at a local level, working hand in hand with communities around London to provide vulnerable, deprived or marginalised people with affordable housing. As our speaker today he emphasised how important such building projects are in bringing strength, stability and self-reliance to communities.'
