Ballymena parishioners help to build homes

Tuesday May 8th 2007

A team from St Patrick’s Parish Church, Ballymena, managed to carry almost 100 blocks up Slemish Mountain to build a small house. 

The group’s endeavours were aimed at raising awareness of the work of Habitat for Humanity and to support a building project in Ghana.

Habitat for Humanity is a non-denominational Christian charity dedicated to eliminating poverty housing worldwide. It builds and renovates simple, decent homes with the help of homeowner families, through volunteer labour and donations of money and materials.

Ballymena’s building project at the top of Slemish raised just over £3,000.
