Anjum Anwar – Dialogue Development Officer at Blackburn Cathedral and LHFH Chair, Rev’d Canon Shannon Ledbetter welcomes a new home partner, George Anyakwo.
Anjum Anwar is hard at work, building a house with team member John Law from LHFH.
“Last week I was honoured to visit Habitat for Humanity in Liverpool, and spent the day listening to how people can help to build their own “castle” It is a wonderful project. I am hoping to have a group of woman from Blackburn spend a day or so helping out. Building your own place also has a faith perspective too. For Muslims our Prophet (saw) built his own mosque/house, and for me as a Muslim woman, that is good enough for me!”
FROM LA TO L8 – WITH HELP FROM HABITAT
TEN teenagers have been building links in a unique Anglo-American exchange that's twinned two cities with a history of riots and successfully demonstrated the positive role that young people can play in regenerating their communities.
The UK visit was facilitated by the Liverpool Habitat for Humanity housing charity after an approach from Los Angeles based charity Spirit of Youth.
LHFH teamed up with the Tiber Project in Toxteth to find five like-minded young people to spend time with the American group, do voluntary work together on a Liverpool building site and explore each other's cities and cultures.
ENGLISH AND FRENCH ON SAME SIDE AT LIVERPOOL HOUSING CHARITY
STAFF and volunteers on a Liverpool building site have agreed to put footballing rivalries aside in the interest of getting the job done.
Housing charity Liverpool Habitat for Humanity has experienced an influx of French intern students this summer.
Eight French students are due to spend time working at the Granby-Toxteth site this summer, the first four of whom arrived just in time for the start of the Euro 2012 football tournament in Poland and Ukraine, where England and France are pitched in the same group.
Work stopped early yesterday as Habitat supporters from both countries got ready to cheer their home nations in a match that eventually ended in a 1-1 draw.
Football apart, the French students are all hoping to find the winning formula at Liverpool Habitat for Humanity that will give them a competitive edge in their future careers.
FRENCH CHURCH GROUP HELPS LIVERPOOL HOUSING CHARITY
TWELVE volunteers from an international church in Paris have spent a week helping to build homes in Liverpool.
The group from the Emmanuel International Church (EIC) helped prepare foundations for the next homes at Liverpool Habitat for Humanity in Granby-Toxteth and created an outdoor seating area for future volunteers.
Led by British woman Ruth Frost, missions' coordinator for EIC, and American Scott Sontag, the church's minister of music and young adults' pastor, the group comprised a mix of French, American, Chinese, Swiss, Brazilian, New Zealand and French/Ghanaian individuals.

SINGING STAR HITS RIGHT NOTE WITH ARMY AND HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
SINGING sensation Rebecca Ferguson was a tonic for the troops when she visited a Liverpool housing charity.
The 2010 X-Factor runner-up, back in her home city for the first in a series of sell-out concerts, met home owners, volunteers and staff at Liverpool Habitat for Humanity, as well as Territorial Army soldiers from the 75 Engineer Regiment who are digging drains and building a road for the charity.
Rebecca, 25, set the latest phase of work in motion by helping to dig the foundations for the next set of homes.
NEW PARTNERSHIP MEANS HOUSING CHARITY IS READY TO BUILD AGAIN
HOUSING charity Liverpool Habitat for Humanity has partnered with Cosmopolitan Housing Association in a £2 million deal that secures the future of a unique low-cost building project in Granby-Toxteth.
Homes at the Habitat site off Kingsley Road are built almost entirely by volunteers, including future home owners who must invest 500 hours of 'sweat equity' – physically working on site – in lieu of finding a £10,000 cash deposit.
With nine homes built and eight families housed, building work ground to a halt as the recession hit hard.
Now, a combination of the deal with Liverpool-based Cosmopolitan Housing Association, volunteer help from the Territorial Army's 75 Engineer Regiment to dig drains and build the road that will service the remaining homes, a donation of materials from construction giant Balfour Beatty and subsidiary Birse Civils, plus the backing of Liverpool City Council, means the housing charity can start building again very soon.
