Embassy community volunteers from diverse backgrounds collaborated with Habitat para la Humanidad on Monday, November 21 at their workshop to make a lasting impact on some of our more vulnerable members of society. Our volunteers contributed in enhancing the quality of life for children who have severe illnesses or disabilities by participating in the (Nuestros Hijos Vuelven A Casa) Our Children Return Home program.
The program helps to decrease the risk of relapse or to obtain other illnesses by providing them with newly constructed homes as well as providing other innovative technology alternatives amongst other services.
Our Embassy volunteers helped in the assembly of furniture and construction of walls that go into the construction of these new homes. They also aided in the assembly of creatively engineered wheelchairs that are comprised of common and economical parts for ease of replacement.
The spirit of giving was well represented by our embassy community members that included Ambassador Carol Perez, Meredith Clark, Glen Cyr, Stephanie Denis, Joni Fauth, Sergio Gonzalez, Penney Hokaj, Joshua Jarvis, Anne Kang, Lou McLoughlin, Jeff McLoughlin, Jean Neu, Samuel Rodriguez, Megan Schildgen, Rebecca Stultz, Tim Stultz, Nikola Tenev, Marci Whiteman, and Rolando Alarcon.
