Habitat

New Zealand has some of the least affordable housing in the developed world. The high cost of housing can keep families in a cycle of poverty; with little money left for food, clothing, health care or education. Habitat for Humanity is a not for profit organization that works in partnership with families in need, breaking the cycle by constructing good quality homes for them on an affordable basis.
