Wanida, A CAM Client, Receives New Habitat Home

President Carter put in a door on a home for the Habitat Project in Thailand.

Wanida, a CAM client who is living with HIV, worked alongside CAM staff and other volunteers to build a home for her family as part of the 2009 Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project in Chiang Mai.

A tailor by trade, Wanida and her family had poor living conditions and limited access to clean water. CAM recommended Wanida as a good candidate for one of the 82 homes being built for the King's 82nd birthday. Wanida applied and was accepted. She worked hard each day alongside the other volunteers to build her new home, often being the first to arrive at the work site each morning and the last to leave each night.
