November 2007 News
Habitat Responds to Bangladesh Cyclone
In response to the devastation of Cyclone Sidr in Bangladesh, Habitat for Humanity sent a team of experts to assess the damage, which is estimated at nearly 1 million homes damaged or destroyed.

For When the Next Disaster Strikes...
After hurricanes Katrina and Rita, countless children were separated from their families, often far from home. But now we have an opportunity to improve housing recovery support systems for when another disaster strikes. The House voted YES for new solutions -- if you haven't already, please ask your Senators to do the same. Congress plans to return home for the holidays in mid-December, so there's every reason to act now. Urge your Senators to vote YES on this critical housing legislation.
Habitat Success Story
Home, Strong Home
A cultural tradition enables a widow in Papua New Guinea to pay off her Habitat house early, increasing the security of her sturdy timber home.
Q&A: Nic Retsinas
Habitat's outgoing board chair addresses disasters, urbanization and the organization's most exciting initiative.
