World Habitat Day

The United Nations has chosen the first Monday in October to be World Habitat Day.

So, 5 October 2009 is a day to remind everybody that affordable and adequate housing should be a priority everywhere. Here is a video posted by Habitat for Humanity on YouTube highlighting the plights of people living in Capotillo, an informal settlement in Santo Domingo and...

...the effects of living in such an environment for their children.
