‘Buy a brick, build a home’ Christmas Appeal

This Christmas, spare a thought for the millions of families around the world who do not have a decent place to call home. 

Meet Riabi. Riabi lived his earliest years with his grandparents and five other grandchildren in a crumbling mud structure that lacked a secure roof and proper ventilation. Dust from the gravel floor would often rise into the air, worsening the children’s coughs, colds and bouts of malaria. A house built in partnership with Habitat for Humanity Zambia means the family now lives in a sturdier, healthier brick house.

Every child, every parent, and every person deserves a decent place to call home. Please support our Christmas Appeal today. Your support will give families like Riabi’s the chance to build a brighter, healthier, and more secure future.

90% of your donation for this appeal goes directly to our home building programmes wherever the need is greatest. 10% ensures that we can continue to sell more bricks, building more homes.

Thank you for supporting the ‘Buy a brick, build a home Christmas Appeal.
