Two Habitat for Humanity Houses Opened In Kaiapoi

Two Habitat for Humanity houses were opened this afternoon in Kaiapoi.  The houses are not quite finished yet, but the two families will be in their new homes within a few weeks.

Habitat for Humanity is a Christian-based international organisation which has President Jimmy Carter as one of its flag-bearers.  These two houses in Fuller Street were helped along for a while by an international team of volunteers, mainly from the US and Canada.

There is no doubt that affordable housing is getting very difficult to find in Canterbury and it is great that these two families are being helped in this way.

People gather for the opening, with one of the houses in the background.
