Cigna Habitat for Humanity Recognition Build 2016
Cigna has been partnering with HFH since 2012 and we have been engaging staff to build houses in Thailand and Indonesia:
- 2012: Built 2 houses in Rayong Province, Thailand
- 2013: Built 4 houses in Rayong Province, Thailand
- 2014: Built 6 houses in Bali, Indonesia
Cigna is committed to helping the communities where we work, play and live become truly healthy. To help this cause Cigna and Habitat for Humanity are partnering together again to build three more houses for under-privileged families in the local Thai community. There will be a total of 50 employees from Belgium, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Middle East, New Zealand, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, U.K., and U.S. making a world of difference in the lives of under-privileged families.
The project will kick-off on March 6 through March 11. If you wish to follow the project, updates, and meet the families, you can follow the hashtag #CignaBuildHFH on Twitter and Facebook.
A big shout out to all 50 volunteers, and to the future homeowners, featured below!
Ms. Sodsri Sairaya
Sodsri Sairaya and her husband are not employed full time, and together make a low and unstable income. Sodsri makes homemade desserts, which she sells at the local market; her husband cooks food for a living. Because they are living in a house without a kitchen or toilet, they use their neighbour’s instead. Habitat for Humanity and Thailand’s Housing for Low-income Program will help this family build a proper house – one with a kitchen and toilet – to help improve their quality of life.
Ms. Salinee Srirat
Salinee and her husband do not have their own house to live in with their two young sons. They are living at her mother’s very small house along with other family members, including Salinee’s mother, brother and niece. Salinee wants to move into their own home, with her own family, but their savings isn’t enough to build a house.
The Habitat for Humanity project will help the Srirat family build their own home, which will help improve their living conditions.
Mr. Woraphan Thititanyaluk
Woraphan, his wife and their toddler son are living in his father’s house. Because his father plans to give the house to Woraphan’s younger sister, Woraphan and his family have to move out and build their own house in the near future. The Habitat for Humanity project will help Woraphan and his young family improve their quality of life by building and living in their own house.
