Article 25, Section 1: “Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.” [from Universal Declaration of Human Rights]
The campers had a wonderful time visiting the Habitat for Humanity Global Village on our last full day of camp. The contrast between the poverty housing and the Habitat Homes was stark and memorable. Most of all, the Global Village helped the campers imagine possibly traveling abroad to do peace work in the future. After touring the Village, we talked with David Snell, from the Fuller Center for Housing, told us stories about his trips to North Korea to develop a Fuller Center housing project there. We ended the day with a Fuller Center service project in a neighborhood near Koinonia and a big pizza dinner!
