Wafaa and Alfrid are the proud parents of two sons, Mark and George. The family of four is very close, and enjoys spending time together.
Mark is a student at the University of South Florida, and his younger brother is going to school at Clearwater High. The boys love playing soccer, going to school and being active. Wafaa and Alfrid work hard to provide for their family, and after being turned down for a home loan, they decided they needed a new path to build their family a better life.
The Bissada-Guirguis family currently lives in an expensive apartment that is too small, with the two boys sharing a room. Wafaa explains that their rent is almost half of their income, and month after month they have a difficult time trying to prioritize between bills and family needs.
After being accepted into the Habitat program, the family felt relief. “I was crying. I couldn’t believe it,” explained Wafaa. “I am very thankful to Habitat and our sponsor, Frenchy's Restaurants”.
She imagines their life will be very different once in their Habitat home. She looks forward to peace among the boys and making new memories together in their Habitat home. “Our kids will have their own rooms and we will own our own home”.
