The Guiterrez family goes home

May 31, 2013

For the last few years, new houses have been popping up around Latin America, built by Amway volunteers and given to families in need.

One week ago today, a home for the Gutierrez family went up in Colombia, constructed by the hands of Amway Business Owners, Habitat for Humanity employees and volunteers from the police department.

While the Guiterrez family previously lived in a one-room house made of cardboard and discarded materials, today they have a permanent cement home with a kitchen, living room, bathroom and separate bedrooms.

This partnership was sparked by Amway Founders Council member Tim Foley, who introduced Amway to Habitat for Humanity.

This video tells the story of how things got started.
