Renewed home and life for Nazma
Nazma Khatun, 45, shares one room with her 18-year-old son in one of the many urban slums in Dhaka. The one solitary room is used for sleeping, cooking and living. With just two small windows, it's humble, but it's home. And today it's much easier to clean, more hygienic and stable after an overhaul from a Habitat for Humanity program.
Rina's new home
At just 24 years old, Rina is a widow with two children. But Rina's independence and security has been restored with a newly renovated home, using recycled materials from their former house. Rina and her sons, Ruman, 7, and Alamin, 3, will finally have their own address - a safe place to call home in Sadhapur, about 7km from Savar.
Water logging a thing of the past
Forida Begum's home was seasonally water logged and unsafe for her family, with electricity coming dangerously close to the saturated floor. With help from a Habitat for Humanity program, the mud floor was replaced with a cement floor that is higher and less vulnerable to flooding.
