Worn Manukau home sees restoration thanks to team of volunteers
Sep 24, 2020

A big thank you to the Kainga Ora, Homes and Communities team who helped Habitat with repainting Wilson & Dawns home in Mangere.

The Kainga Ora team along with our own Build team were able to repaint the entire interior of the home in one day, a massive achievement and one that will make a big difference in the families lives.

Without their time, kindness and generosity we would not have been able to achieve so much in such a short space of time.

Habitat undertook essential repairs to the home including major roof repairs, which had been leaking for some time causing internal damage.

Habitat also installed a whole new bathroom, ranch sliders, serviced all windows, replaced decking timber and fixed the damaged eaves and spouting.
