Habitat Japan's Project HomeWorks (PHW), is a domestic housing support program to help the vulnerable populations in Tokyo by upgrading their living environments.
In our neighborhood, there are people who have difficulty cleaning up by themselves. For example, due to old age or disabilities, it is difficult for them to clean up their rooms, sometimes resulting in poor hygiene. Some also find difficulty in moving heavy items, and those make it difficult for them to live. In addition, now that the pandemic affects many people's lives so improving the living environment can help prevent infectious diseases. In our activities, we visit homes and talk with our beneficiaries in need of a decent place to live, helping them with necessary cleaning and moving heavy items.
