World Habitat Day takes place each year on the first Monday of October. This year, John Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International made a call for all Habitat for Humanity partners to “lift [their] voice, [their] hands and [their] prayers and help raise awareness for the great need for safe, affordable shelter”. OLX has partnered with Habitat for Humanity, acting on a shared vision to make the world a better place by building strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter. This partnership is particularly apt this year, as Habitat for Humanity SA celebrates its milestone 21st birthday.
Habitat for Humanity SA believes that everyone deserves a decent place to live. Adequate shelter is a critical foundation for the creation of improved opportunities, health and education in the country. With that in mind, Habitat for Humanity partners with communities, government, donors and the private sector to construct and improve shelter for South Africa’s low-income families through Volunteer Build Events.
