Dow Romania Volunteers Work Alongside Future Homeowner in Habitat Project

- August 11, 2016 -

Recently, 15 employees from Dow Romania helped with the finishing work for a multi-family house located in Ploiesti, 60 kilometers north of the capital, Bucharest. They joined a Habitat for Humanity team that is building two houses for eight families currently living in poor conditions. Dow has supported the project since last year. One building will be finished at the end of the year, while the second will be ready for its future owners in 2017.

During the volunteer day, the Dow team and one of the future homeowners helped with drywall sanding and plastering, as well as painting walls.

Access to proper housing will enable the families in Ploiesti to live in a healthy and safe environment, helping them to focus more on their personal aspirations and their children’s education.

\"A lot of our colleagues joined as volunteers, showing eagerness to help people in need. I am very glad about that. Being able to help others is a strong value that motivates us, and we are committed to supporting vulnerable communities with similar actions in the future,\" said Claudiu Tuncu, country manager, Dow Romania.

The partnership in Romania is part of Dow’s 34 years of global commitment to Habitat for Humanity.
