Pipelife supports Habitat for Humanity

Corporate Social Responsibility is important to Pipelife and in this respect we have decided to extend our activities and to support a project of Habitat for Humanity in Kostinbrod / Bulgaria to errect houses for underpreviliged people by means of product donation as well as financial contribution. The whole project also includes support from Wienerberger and Tondach and  is realized with the help of over 100 volunteers, digging the ground, errecting the buildings and installing the systems, guided by professionals. The construction work for the first house has started in June and shall be finished in November. The last house is expected to be finalized in October 2014.

Habitat Bulgaria has been working on selecting the right beneficiaries. Meetings were with the Mayor of Kostinbrod, the Director of the Social Services Office and other representatives of the municipality of Kostinbrod were held to start the identification process. After an information dissemination campaign in Kostinbrod and the neighboring villages, three different meetings with potential interested families were held. The opportunity was then extended to residents of the neighboring regions of Sofia – Nadejda and Vrubnitsa. Meetings with the mayors of those municipalities were held followed by information meetings with families living in those regions. A pool of approximately 35 families has been identified and will be short-listed by Habitat Bulgaria based on the selection criteria, the living conditions of the families and their need. The short-listed families will be further scrutinized by a selection committee set up of representatives of Habitat Bulgaria’s Board of Directors and the Municipality of Kostinbrod.
