HABITAT FOR HUMANITY AIMS TO GIVE
PEOPLE IN NEW ZEALAND AND AROUND THE WORLD A CHANCE OF A SIMPLE, DECENT HOME
Worldwide 1.6 billion people live in poor housing conditions. As a result their health is poor, they struggle to pay bills, buy food or afford medical care. For many even the basics of shelter are out of reach. Habitat for Humanity’s mission is to give those people a hand up to fill their basic needs for housing. Every year, these houses make a real difference in the lives of those they shelter.
Offering them not just a roof over their heads, but the opportunity to work towards owning their house. A simple, decent home is the foundation for a better life. Every individual and family whose life is enhanced by improved housing helps build the foundation for a better New Zealand.
