with the support of the Lusaka Community
Another amazing and rewarding experience working with Habitat for Humanity Zambia in Lusaka. Starting the trip off with 2 sisters, born in Zambia, now living in Canada, Peggy and Kathryn reached out to the community of Lusaka by offering yoga classes in exchange for donations to support the work of Habitat for Humanity Zambia. 10,000 kwacha was raised, all proceeds donated to Habitat Zambia and most important, connections were made with wonderful people and the word is spreading about the work that Habitat Zambia is doing in the country.
Warm thanks go out to all who supported our efforts, Siobhan at Ad-dicts.com, Leopards Hill PoloCrosse Club, Sonal at Yoga Rays, Jackie and staff at Curves Mandahill, Wayside GuestHouse, yoga teachers Simone and Nickie at Yoga Lusaka and Faiza Assad for hosting us and all the yogis that joined us.
Their support has helped to make a meaningful difference in the lives of families today, tomorrow and always.
And that difference has already been shown. The following week 11 team members joined Habitat Team Leader Peggy Bell to build 2 homes for 2 deserving families in Linda Township Lusaka. Working with the staff of Habitat Zambia and local skilled tradesmen as well as the combined efforts of the community, 20 people now have a safe warm place to live. 70-year-old Kaundula and wife Eli supporting their 2 daughters and 9 grandkids, and in the other household 70-year-old Miliyah supporting her 2 daughters and 4 grandkids will receive a modest decent place to live. Working together we are helping to make a more healthy and positive future in their lives for generations to come.
And congrats to our winners of the Yoga Fundraiser raffle prizes. Pia Korpinen Simone Marti and Monika Emch. Warmest thanks from Peggy Bell and Kathryn Turnbull
