THE BERITA / 2016 – 2017 ISSUE 2
HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
BY THE MEMBERS OF HABITAT FOR HUMANITY AT M’KIS
As we  nish the 2016-17 academic year, Habitat for Humanity wishes to express their gra tude for the Mont’Kiara Interna onal School community. This year, we were able to build a house for a very deserving family of  ve living in Rayong, Thailand. This family survives o  3,000 baht, or about RM400 a month and lived in a house without walls, running water, or a toilet. Their  oor was slats of bamboo balanced above the ground and their kitchen was a table in the middle of an open area in their shelter.
We worked 8-hour days for a full week, mixing concrete, pouring  oors, laying brick, plastering walls, digging out and installing a sep c system, and building staircases to give them a home they can be proud of, and which they can live in for years to come. We even built swingsets for the seven-year-old to play in! A er the week, we were exhausted but felt wonderful to be able to help this deserving family.
