Habitat for Humanity of Orange County, along with Habitat Wake, Durham and Cumberland counties, are constructing four homes simultaneously for four families. What’s unique about the current project, is the way it’s being funded: by you! Imagine being able to help a deserving family afford a house simply by forgoing a cup of coffee – or a slice of pie. Together, we can give where we live and help build strength, stability and self-reliance for Thein Oo and Lewh Eh Paw and their children!

Thein Oo and his wife, Lewh Eh Paw (pictured top right), will get a home of their own to own on Sykes Street in Chapel Hill. Oo, a housekeeper at UNC, and his wife, natives of Burma, met in a refugee camp in Thailand before coming to America. They have two children, ages one and five. Help us, help them by providing a stable foundation for their family!
