We are excited to partner with Habitat for Humanity this year! In addition to having a build day (sign-ups are still open) on August 17th, where we will be actually helping to build a home for a local Milwaukee family.
So who are the new future homeowners?
The family identifies as Karen, with family heritage from the Kayin State of Myanmar’s southeastern border. A horrendous civil war forced the family into refugee camps, where Bler Dah actually lived for over a decade.
After finally being granted entry into the United States, Bler Dah found employment at Family Home Health Care and FedEx, while Ku Wah Pah is raising their two young children Wahlaweh Dah (2 years) and Wahkpulu Dah (5 months). Their family has been living with Bler Dah’s brother, sister and her two teenage children in a four bedroom, one bath rental. With your support, they will be able to move out of their overcrowded rental and build a brand new four bedroom home in the Midtown neighborhood.
