Coast Communications and 20 of its fellow agency partners in the PRGN network made a $7,000 payment to the Niall Mellon Township Trust, non-profit, building homes for impoverished families in Cape Town, Witsand. As part of that donation, a group of PRGN volunteers participated in the building of the PRGN House on April 18. At the end of the day, the keys were handed over to an overjoyed family.

Coast Communications volunteers and its PRGN colleagues spent the day working on site. It was joyful work with hard hats on under the African sun.

“Despite our hard work this is of course just a small step, says Karl Rickhamre, Coast Communications, a PRGN member since many years. “We have handed the keys to the family. To see Niall’s houses build up a new area where there previously only have been shacks was an extraordinary feeling.”

PRGN joined the Niall Mellon Township Fund based in Dublin. Since 2003 Mellon has built more than 20,000 homes that have moved local families from shacks to three-room homes.
