U of M Medicine set to build for Habitat for Humanity

  • Print

The University of Manitoba’s Faculty of Medicine is looking for volunteers for its Habitat for Humanity Build Project.
The faculty is looking for people to help them build a home for a local family in need. The build takes place from June 10 to 21.
"We believe that social responsibility and accountability are core values for our students and physicians to practice for the well-being of all members of society," the faculty said on its website.
Dr. Brian Postl, dean of Medicine, said in a September blog post that physicians can take a home for granted.
"That is not the case for far too many Canadians," Postl wrote. "Some 1.3 million Canadian households are in housing need. That’s 3 million people —up 77% from 2002. An astonishing one in seven children lives in poverty in Canada."
