LOS ANGELES (CBS) — As part of the “Build Smart Breathe Easier” asthma education campaign, an international pharmaceutical company is building four homes with asthma-healthy features for low-income families affected by the disease.

Merck Pharmaceuticals has partnered with Habitat for Humanity, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) and carpenter and HGTV personality Carter Oosterhouse for the construction.

Homes will be built for families in Atlanta, Detroit, Los Angeles and Philadelphia.
