For the fourth year in a row, luxury property developer Raimon Land has lent its support to Habitat for Humanity Thailand (HFH), a non-profit organisation dedicated to the construction of houses for low-income families.
Chief Executive Officer Hubert Viriot led his team of thirty volunteers to the Eastern Seaboard where they worked on-site to build two houses for Thitiwan Khumkeng and Chantri Ornburi, residents from Ban Chang Amphur, Rayong Province

“We admire the work and effort of Habitat for Humanity Thailand to improve the well-being of various communities. Through this programme, we have gained first-hand experience that enables us to see the difficult circumstances and challenges people face to provide a decent place for their families to live,” remarked Mr. Viriot. “Raimon Land’s commitment to HFH is our way of giving back to areas where we are present, and this is why we remain dedicated to projects that bring lasting positive changes for people and their surroundings.”
In late 2008, Raimon Land started its partnership with HFH Thailand and helped build 3 houses in Nakhon Ratchasima. One year later, the company joined HFH and the Jimmy-Rosalynn Carter Foundation to build another house in Pathum Thani, followed by 2 more houses in Rayong in 2010. As part of its CSR programme, the company also supports other activities such as the PATT Foundation’s Tree Planting initiative in Khao Yai National Park and the lifetime sponsorship of “Pang Raimon”, now aged 3, at the Anantara Elephant Camp, Chiang Rai.
