HANDY LO­CALS NEEDED FOR CHAR­ITY REN­O­VA­TIONS

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Trades­men and DIY-ers are be­ing sought by Habi­tat for Hu­man­ity for non-profit home re­pairs in Porirua. The char­ity has spent three years re­pair­ing leak­ing roofs, patch­ing decks, mak­ing homes more ac­ces­si­ble for the dis­abled, and other es­sen­tial home re­pairs for low-in­come res­i­dents through its A Brush With Kind­ness pro­gramme. Habi­tat fronts the money for ren­o­va­tion and re­pairs, which is then paid back by re­cip­i­ent fam­i­lies as they can af­ford it. Home­own­ers also help with build­ing work in an ar­range­ment known as sweat eq­uity. Habi­tat is seek­ing vol­un­teers to help with the much-needed projects and is also able to pay some trades­men for more spe­cialised work. To get in­volved with the pro­gramme or be­come a spon­sor phone 238 4251.
