Sharing the experience
Nur Akter, 44, candidly shared the difficulties she had in her community before she was the beneficiary of a Habitat project.
At the closing ceremony of the Korean aid funded project in January, Nur Akter spoke in front of over 100 of her fellow community members, saying her relationship with neighbours was poor because her family's toilet was unhygienic and had a pungent smell.
Every single person we met and worked with made us feel part of the community
For my 5th Global Village build with Habitat for Humanity I found myself leading a team of volunteers from the UK to Bangladesh, a country (as a team) we knew little about, aside from the vital work that Habitat for Humanity does. We arrived in Dhaka tired from the long journey yet eager to see what Bangladesh had to offer. And we were not disappointed - what a beautiful and vibrant country!
