Peni & Ivinei

Jul 7, 2020
In 2018, Peni Waqa and Ivinei Tinai moved into a cyclone-resilient Habitat home. Peni told us what it was like in their old house. “There were lots of holes on the old tin roof and on the side walls as well. Water used to come in the house and our things got wet. We had no choice but to manage with the situation. Receiving this house is a blessing which I thought would never happen.” The couple, both in their 60’s, even helped with minor construction work while others in the community were trained in safer construction techniques. “Life was hard for us but I never gave up. I had the hope that something good will happen to us.”
