Habitat Happenings

A Tribute to Honor “Our Three Winners.”


Habitat for Humanity of Wake County, in partnership with the Islamic Association of Raleigh and OurThreeWinners.org, is honoring the lives of Deah Barakat, Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha, and Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha by building the Our Three Winners House this spring. All three victims of the February 10, 2015 shooting in Chapel Hill had been supporters of Habitat Wake’s Interfaith Build since its inception in 2011. In addition, as part of Habitat for Humanity’s Global Tithe program, Habitat Wake will pledge to support the construction of a house in partnership with Habitat Jordan, Abu-Salha’s native country.

The financial goal for the Our Three Winners House is $77,000, which includes $65,000 for the sponsorship of the home in Wake County and $12,000 to support the construction of a home in Aqraba, Jordan, a village in northern Jordan near the border with Syria. Construction will begin on the Wake County house, which will be in southeast Raleigh’s Crosstowne neighborhood, in May. Volunteers from the community will be needed to help build the home.

“This build honors the lives of Deah, Yusor, and Razan, and exemplifies the love that the community has for them,” said Sana Ansari, a friend of all three and a contributor to OurThreeWinners.org, the website established to help keep their memory alive. “This partnership will bring together people of different faiths and backgrounds, and celebrate the dedication of Our Three Winners to serving humanity.”
