This fund is to support Habitat for Humanity's work in providing shelter across the Pacific. In 2016, Habitat for Humanity successfully built 100 Homes across the Pacific for families in need of shelter.
Habitat for Humanity is committed to helping communities in the Pacific rebuild after storms like Cyclone Winston, as well as to prepare for future disasters.
The Syrian Refugee crisis has resulted in a large influx of people into neighbouring countries. Habitat for Humanity New Zealand’s work in the region is in Lebanon, and in partnership with Habitat for Humanity Lebanon.
The project ensures that families not living in refugee camps are living in hospitable and safe structures, through work like the construction of room partitions, and through the supply of bedding and other basic necessities, and sometimes through the rehoming of families.
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.
