Jacqueline Fernandez recently helped the flood affected people in Chennai who were victims of the incessant rains .
The actress put in their best to help the victims rebuild their homes and restart their lives by joining hands with an NGO, Habitat for Humanity, and they in unison launched a relief Campaign 'Jacqueline Builds' .
She helped raise funds to build and repair houses for flood affected people.
On the 9th of April Jacqueline went to Chennai to manually build houses.
Jacqueline who is the Asian ambassador for Habitat for Humanity, has been associated with the NGO for over 5 years.
The actress is ecstatic as Jacqueline builds, which is a solo entity, becomes an annual property and thereby will take place every year.
The actress will each year promote the cause of shelter across the world through its platform.
On the huge success of helping victims by building homes for people through her initiative Jacqueline builds, the actress was recently invited to give a talk about housing and human development at the European Parliament.
The European Parliament is the parliament of the European Union (EU).
Every 20 years the world conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development takes place. This year this conference called Habitat III will take place on 17-20 October in Quito, Ecuador. This Conference will reinvigorate the global commitments of governments both from the North and the South to sustainable urbanization and focus on the implementation of a so-called “New Urban Agenda”. This is considered to be an opportunity to open discussions on important urban challenges and questions, such as how to plan and manage cities, towns and villages for sustainable development.
For the same, an event Habitat for Humanity Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) Office was organised which was a high-level event in the European Parliament on 26 April 2016 in Brussels.
The event brought together Members of European Parliament, high level policymakers, diplomats, civil society and media in a group of around 60 persons.
