Habitat For Humanity Malawi Wish List

Dear GV Team Member

We truly appreciate your willingness to come to Malawi and donate your time and effort to help us reduce substandard housing conditions in Malawi.  Your generosity is truly amazing and it will help us accomplish the monumental task we face.  Some Team Members have asked if there is more that they can do to help, so we have put together a Wish List of items that can contribute even further to our effort’s success.  This list includes items that are identified by GV Teams.  We will eventually have to use our funds to purchase these items, funds that could be spent for housing.  A donation of something on the list will allow us to use the funds for housing improvement instead of organization operations. A cash donation is also acceptable in order to purchase some items locally. We know you are already giving a lot, but maybe you would like to help a little more. We have included an estimated cost per item in the last column to give you an idea.
