Angela and Aaron’s Story

Angela Swamber is visually-impaired; her son Aaron has cerebral palsy and limited mobility. Before they came to Habitat for Humanity, they lived in a dilapidated two-bedroom house, with termite-ridden rafters and gaping holes in the roof itself.  Inside, the house was cold, damp and musty; in front of the lone door, a drain full of stagnant water became a murky pool whenever it rained.

With the support of Sieunarine Coosal, Habitat’s Capital Campaign Cabinet Chairman, and volunteers from at home and abroad.  The Swamber family welcomed the Habitat Trinidad-Tobago team to the Dedication and Key Ceremony in September 2020.

Angela Swamber said, “My Pastor counselled me, he said, “Have faith and keep hoping.” And today is proof that my faith and hope in God and Habitat for Humanity were rewarded!“

Sieunarine Coosal: “My company has supported various social projects in this area for some time, and I was drawn to help Angela and Aaron when I heard of their difficult living situation.  I am very glad to be able to help them with a finished house, complete with modifications to accommodate their needs.“
