Vietnam Big Build - 2018

bbuild

Please join Nathan Collins, Jay Davies, Tracey Mazur and Phil Stark for the Vietnam Big Build, 2018.

From the land of kings to fields of lotuses, the Vietnam Big Build 2018 will take place from 5-9 November 2018, in Cao Lanh District, Dong Thap Province, about 160 kilometers from Ho Chi Minh City.

Dong Thap Province is considered the “rice bowl” of Vietnam. How-ever, the population of more than 1.6 million is at risk from annual flooding. Such natural disasters make these agriculture-dependent families — who earn less than US$100 a month — vulnerable to falling back into poverty. Habitat for Humanity Vietnam has been helping families in Dong Thap to build a better life for themselves since 2011.

Families in Dong Thap need your support and contribution to combat inadequate housing conditions and lack of access to safe sanitation. Please join us as a volunteer for the Vietnam Big Build 2018. Together, we can work with the families to build strength, stability and self-reliance.

Location:
Cao Lanh District, Dong Thap Province

Dates:
3-10 November 2018

Cost:
 $5,550 including airfares (Group booking) and excluding R&R

These costs do not include; visas, inoculations, trip cancellation insurance.
