Help us to raise funds to sustain Habitat's mission during the pandemic crisis 

During this state of emergency, staying home together with our families helps save lives. We realize, however, that millions of vulnerable people including children and the elderly, don’t have places to live. Millions more are becoming increasingly vulnerable because of lost income as businesses close due to COVID-19. Families in Japan and Asia-Pacific are not exempt from this and are also feeling the effects of the disruptions caused by the pandemic.

More than ever, Habitat for Humanity needs your support to continue our mission globally and here in Japan. The event will be presented by Jon Kabira, a popular personality in Japan, and Jesper Koll, a senior advisor to Wisdom Tree Japan KK.  Please join us in helping to provide healthy homes and hopes to the people affected by COVID-19 in Japan.
