Richmond Habitat takes First Global Village Trip!

Posted on by HabitatAdmin

One of the most unique parts about Habitat for Humanity is that we are an organization that works worldwide to build safe, affordable homes for hardworking families.  Habitat for Humanity has offices in over 70 countries around the world.
This year, Richmond Habitat took the opportunity to bring a group of volunteers to Siem Reap, Cambodia to experience building a home abroad through Habitat for Humanity’s Global Village program.
Volunteers spent the week working alongside our new Cambodian friends to build a home for a local family.  We ended our week with a beautiful dedication ceremony where we threw flower petals in the air to celebrate the new homeowners, ate traditional Cambodian food and fruits, and played some games with local villagers.  The experience was incredibly rewarding and really helped to show the power and impact of Habitat around the world.
