- My Story
It's happening, I'm off to India to build homes for people in need!
In January 2021, together with 50 Aon colleagues, I will be volunteering for Habitat for Humanity (H4H) in Pondicherry, India. Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit housing organisation working to empower people in the world’s poorest communities to overcome the chronic lack of decent housing. The charity aims to create a world where everyone has a decent place to live. In order to achieve its goal, H4H helps people in need to build, repair and renovate homes.
My colleagues and I will spend a week building houses for locals who don't have a decent (or any at all) roof over their heads. Our team has to raise in excess of £150,000.00 for the build which means that my personal target is more than £3,000.00.
Words can't describe how scared I am: am I going to hit (exceed) my target?; am I going to survive one week working on a construction site in the scorching heat?; and so many other questions I can't stop asking myself!
Your help and support would therefore mean the world to me and give me strength and determination to overcome the obstacles ahead of me. Please help me help people in need by donating on my page! I know life is difficult and everyone has their own struggles but, as you know, every little helps. Together we can all make a difference and change someone's life for the better!
Thanks for reading my story and for your donation!
