Working in the Philippines, Jap Semana – Volunteer Coordinator at Habitat for Humanity – has become especially aware of the extreme poverty levels in the country. He tells us that the situation in the country is extremely serious in that 4 out of 10 families don’t have a decent place to live. In fact, most Filipino families live in slum areas like these in Manila. In this video, he exploses why there are slums in the Philippines and what can be done to help the families who live there, providing affordable, social housing and the means to support local communities.

ABOUT OUR CHARITY
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. Habitat for Humanity’s vision is a world where everyone has a safe place to call home. We believe that a decent home helps to permanently break the cycle of poverty and allows families to achieve strength, stability, and self-reliance.
