Home #51 - Niagara Falls Community Build (2016)

Ali  Family    N F  Caledonia

A brand new Habitat for Humanity house will be built this summer in Niagara Falls. This Habitat house will become a new home to a local family of 10, including 8 children!

The family that will call this house a home is the Ali family.  Abdulrazaq and Fadumo made the courageous decision to move to Canada six years ago from Somalia due to the unrest in the country and their desire to raise their children in a safe and secure environment.  

Abdulrazaq and Fadumo have dreamed of owning their own home for years. They see homeownership as providing a secure and safe place for their family, so their children can focus on their studies. They also feel that it is important for their children to work for high marks in school as education will prove to be valuable for their future.

As a family it is important to them that they take care of each other. “When my children are older,” Abdulrazaq says, “I want them to look back and see that we did as much as we could for their future.”

The children are all excited to have a basement and back yard to play in! Abdulrazaq is looking forward to working alongside donors and volunteers building a new future for their family.

This house will be built with the help of individuals and community businesses.
