Its President for Habitat for Humanity Kota Kinabalu mentioned in an interview that he encourages everyone to impact lives and give hope by being a volunteer to build decent homes for the needy. The NGO is in constant need of support from members of the public not just in funds, but also in manpower to build houses.
HFH identifies families in need of financial support and assist them in building new homes or refurbish existing ones. According to its National President Mr Allen Tong, the average funds required for the construction of a house is RM30,000. Qualified beneficiaries will be granted the fund on a loan basis with no interest, and the NGO is also involved in the construction of house to ensure the fund is appropriated.
“We can volunteer in many ways to help build homes, build hopes & build lives. We can help many who are in need of decent housing and it begins with ensuring that they have a proper roof over their heads.” Said Mr Allen Tong.
“Property Hunter is excited to embark on this project in partnership with Habitat For Humanity Kota Kinabalu branch. This will be our key CSR project for the year. We will continue the donation drive in our upcoming expos in Sandakan & Tawau.” Said Property Hunter’s Director Mr Michael Hiew. He added “it has always been our dream to assist the poor by putting a roof over their family, and we are committed to see this project come to realisation.”
