Every 24 hours Habitat for Humanity completes 115 homes around the world. The needs of all these families are diverse, but so are the Habitat for Humanity solutions. Habitat builds new homes and repairs others. Habitat helps those who have been struck by disaster and partners in international projects to provide communities with shelter, sanitation and a decent place to live. No matter which housing solution, the outcomes are great: a foundation for a better life.
Severe flooding and torrential rain in Sri Lanka has destroyed more than 3000 homes, and displaced more than 50,000 families. Particularly for those without access to safe shelter and proper sanitation, recovery after a disaster is incredibly difficult.
Habitat for Humanity Sri Lanka is responding in Kalutara Province, providing transitional shelters and water and sanitation kits to families displaced by the flooding. These critical supplies allow families to start rebuilding their lives after a disaster.
Our mission has always been to bring people together to build homes, communities and hope. Habitat for Humanity has been working alongside families in Samoa for many years now, including after the 2009 tsunami, and Cyclone Evan in 2012.
In Samoa, Habitat for Humanity housing developments have provided a place to raise a family, shelter in the place of poverty, and protection from natural disasters.
Right now, we are in the final year of a three-year project in partnership with the governments of New Zealand and Samoa. With help from kiwi donors, 264 families will have a decent place to live.
Habitat for Humanity New Zealand is a not-for-profit organisation that works in partnership with people of goodwill and families in housing need, to eliminate sub-standard housing.
