Malawi is facing an increasing number of orphans and vulnerable children as a result of the HIV/AIDS crisis that is compounded by poverty and food insecurity. Two years ago, Habitat for Humanity Malawi (HFHM) decided to intervene by starting an Orphaned and Vulnerable Children (OVC) program. On a Global Village build in August, Barbara Thomas and her team members will travel to Mulanje, Malawi to support HFHM’s OVC program. They will have the opportunity to place their work building a home within a broader social context to achieve a deeper understanding of the issues that many residents of Malawi face.
