The Bermuda archipelago is as renowned for its pink-hued beaches, aquamarine waters and lush vegetation as it is for its booming offshore financial sector. But with 60,000 people occupying fewer than 12,000 acres it is also acknowledged as one of the most densely populated, expensive countries in the world. Thus, many Bermudian families are struggling to find affordable and adequate housing, and homeowners are faced with soaring construction costs and exorbitant building materials.
What can you do to help?
Habitat Bermuda works in the community in a collaborative process of extending or renovating homes for families in need. Our needs are varied: funds in order to purchase building materials and to recruit qualified construction labourers; and volunteers, particularly skilled labourers such as electricians, plumbers, carpenters, and masons, but just as importantly, anyone who can wield a paintbrush, hang a door, or assist with project management.
Join Habitat of Humanity of Bermuda to help make Bermuda better...
one home at a time.
