“Our mission in the Middle East is to build a safe and stable environment where families and communities can thrive.

With the first ever MENA Housing Forum we want to provide a platform for all the relevant stakeholders to share ideas, enhance collaboration, as well as define concrete actions and practical solutions that will improve the living conditions of the most vulnerable ones and help communities as a whole.”

National Director - Habitat for Humanity Egypt

“Habitat for Humanity Egypt is pleased that the first MENA Housing Forum takes place in Cairo. The need for housing in Egypt has significantly increased in both rural and urban areas as the demand for adequate housing for low-income families exceeds the supply and affordability of housing units.

We believe investing in housing is an investment in stability, success, and health of the community. Through the first MENA housing forum, we seek to enable a sustainable housing eco-system for vulnerable and low-income communities and increase the public awareness of the right to adequate and decent housing”
