Healthy homes are fundamental to building stronger families

Kia ora, welcome to Habitat for Humanity New Zealand. It’s exciting to have AMI on our side helping us to address the sub-standard housing needs of Kiwi families across Aotearoa. 

We know adequate housing is fundamental to building stronger families and improved health outcomes.

We also know that 21.5% of homes across New Zealand are affected by dampness, nearly 17% have visible mould, and almost 1 in every 9 people live in overcrowded conditions.

Something as simple as hanging a pair of curtains can make a big difference to the lives of the families we work with. We provide practical support to help keep families warm and dry and to help them have a healthier home.

Supporting Habitat means we can give a hand up to Kiwi families in need of warm, dry and healthy homes. Your contribution will make a big difference. Donate
