BILD Chair Steve Deveaux presented our Habitat partner family the Mohammeds with keys to their new home on November 7.
Parents Muna and Abdenur hope that their new home on Birchmount Road will mean a brighter future for their five children. “Being a Habitat homeowner will certainly change the quality of life for our family,” Abdenur said. “The children will have a sense of security that will help them focus on their studies, which will help them create opportunities for a brighter future.”
Earlier this year a group of BILD member volunteers spent a full day at the Birchmount Road site framing, putting in insulation, placing vapour barriers and installing casement windows. Today the site’s eight two-storey semi-detached homes and one single-detached house are home to nine Habitat partner families.
With the help of our members, we raise money for Habitat for Humanity GTA through a series of annual fundraisers and networking events, as well as with support from our Humanitarian Champions Bell Canada and Caesarstone. BILD supports one partner family every year as part of our long-standing community partnership with Habitat.
