29 JULY, 2021. Malachi Place was inspired by Malachi, a young boy in East London who asked the Salvation Army to build a house for someone homeless with his tooth-fairy money! His £5 realised £5m and made it possible to supply 42 single homeless people with well-equipped quality mobile homes. Roisin Hannaway SSL has been involved with community-led action on housing, including a recent venture to provide homes for ‘rough sleepers,’ and tells us about the launch of the Malachi Project at the end of June on the lawn at Westminster Abbey.
