“Mother Theresa once said ‘being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for is the greatest poverty.’ Many organizations give charity but only a few are the ones that find the real meaning of poverty in one’s life. Helping those weak persons and rendering some financial relief wasn’t our biggest achievement, but bringing love and satisfaction to this family.

The granny’s eyes full of hope and the father’s simple smile warmed our hearts and encouraged us to do our best in order to achieve their happiness.

I feel grateful to Habitat for Humanity for giving me the opportunity to be part of their act of kindness, because together we can do great things but the most important thing is that these acts remain full of love.”
