Hyundai Engineering & Construction (HDEC) continues supportingHabitat for Humanity Vietnam (HFH Vietnam) to build strong communities


Building upon a successful first funding phase in northern Vietnam through Community Chest Korea (CCK) and Habitat for Humanity Korea (HFHK), HDEC renewed its partnership with HFH Vietnam to bring further relief to families in disaster-prone areas of Thai Binh province in Northern Vietnam.

Habitat for Humanity Vietnam reaches out to new areas and new communities

Launched on 22 March, it will take 6 volunteer teams from countries worldwide 6 weeks to build 6 homes for vulnerable families in Tan Lac District, Hoa Binh province in North Vietnam. The volunteer builds are part of a larger project “New Homes – New Community: Improved Housing and WASH for Low Income Households in Northern Vietnam”. The aim is to expand current housing, water and sanitation projects in North Western Vietnam to assist vulnerable households including those of underrepresented ethnic communities in remote mountainous areas and to hopefully ultimately contribute to improved living conditions and poverty reduction.

Empowering women with safe, decent shelter


“I am looking forward to the changes in our lives. It will be less difficult, less hot and less leaky in our home”, says Tran Kim Xuyen, 74, a grandmother living in rural TânThành district, Bà Ria-VũngTàu province, Vietnam.

POSCO Beyond 2014

Seventy-four-year-old Tran Kim Xuyen looks forward to better health in a new home built by Habitat for Humanity volunteers in southern Vietnam. She used to worry a lot about annual repairs to her old house, made of tin walls, thatched roof and untreated wooden beams. Damage to her house from fallen tree branches and flooding after heavy rains were just some of her problems. “It was not much better in the dry season as the house is suffocatingly hot,” said Xuyen who lives in Tan Hoa commune, Tan Thanh district, Ba Ria-Vung Tau province. (NOTE: Tran is her family name, middle name Kim and first name is Xuyen.)

Volunteers, The Indispensable Resource Of HFH Vietnam!

With each brick laid, each hand extended, each open heart and each smile and act of kindness, the local and international Habitat for Humanity volunteers keep on being our most treasured resource and valued source of inspiration. They keep embodying our shared realization that attaining a world where everyone has a decent place to live is more than a dream. It is a reality in the making, built by common purpose, under the scorching Vietnamese sun, the torrential Mekong Delta Monsoons or while standing in mosquito-infested flood waters.
