Robert Teweleit of Houston looks at the charitable work of Habitat for Humanity

Volunteers are the lifeblood of any charitable organization.

HOUSTON, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, August 10, 2018 / -- By donating a portion of his time to good causes, Houston's Robert Teweleit has helped numerous organizations including the Houston Food Bank, the Knights of Columbus, and Habitat for Humanity. A Texas Municipal Police Association officer of the year and recipient of a Governor of Texas-issued medal of valor, Teweleit is also heavily involved with the Catholic Church.

Robert Teweleit's officer of the year award and medal of valor are just two of the Houston native's many accolades following his three-decade career on the city's police force. Teweleit has also been granted a number of life-saving awards, one of which came after the officer used his first aid training to save a life by administering CPR following a severe auto accident. Another of Teweleit's accolades includes an honorable mention from The 100 Club of Houston for delivering a baby in the back of a patrol car.

"I just do what I'd hope any other upstanding citizen or member of the community might do under the same circumstances," suggests Teweleit. "During my time on the city of Houston's police force, and through my charitable and volunteer work, I've witnessed the fantastic efforts of my friends, colleagues, fellow volunteers, and others from the local area over the years."

Of his work with Habitat for Humanity, Teweleit explains that he and fellow volunteers assist in building and repairing homes for disabled veterans and former police officers.

Habitat for Humanity is a non-governmental, nonprofit organization and self-described Christian housing ministry. "The mission statement of Habitat for Humanity centers around putting God's love into action," says Teweleit, "as well as bringing people together to build homes, communities, and hope."

He continues, "Habitat for Humanity may work around the corner from you, in your town or city, but they also work right across the U.S. and globally. Habitat for Humanity volunteers undertaking work overseas do so in more than 40 nations currently."

In the U.S., Habitat for Humanity builds in all 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. In Canada, they build in all ten provinces and each of Canada's three territories, according to Teweleit.

Habitat for Humanity also builds in more than 15 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. Countries here include Brazil, Jamaica, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Argentina, and more.

Of the organization's work in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, Teweleit reveals that Habitat for Humanity builds in more than 25 countries in the region. "Countries here include the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Poland, South Africa, Egypt, and many others," he adds.

In Asia and the Pacific, Habitat for Humanity currently builds in around 15 countries including India, the Philippines, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Hong Kong, and China, among others.
