Charity of the Month - July: Habitat for Humanity New Zealand

Habitat for Humanity NZ Logo

Habitat for Humanity New Zealand is part of a global housing charity with a vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Habitat believes that adequate housing is a human right. Habitat for Humanity staff and dedicated volunteers partner with families living in poverty housing across 70 countries to provide decent and affordable shelter. Since 1976, Habitat has built and rehabilitated over 300,000 homes worldwide, providing hope for over one and a half million people.

For the past 25 years, Habitat’s grassroots affiliates have been serving local communities across New Zealand. Thousands of families have developed skills and significantly improved their well-being. Habitat for Humanity New Zealand programs include the assisted home ownership, low-cost renovation, critical home repair and affordable rental programs. Habitat also advocates for just and fair housing policies to eliminate the barriers that keep people trapped in poverty. The volunteering program enables people to serve both in New Zealand and overseas.

In the Pacific, Habitat also works with local partners and communities responding to disasters and ensuring that decent and affordable homes are also resilient to future disasters.

HealthPost has committed $40,000 to kick-start Oxfam’s campaign to reach over 1million people by the end of 2017.

They will provide specialist support to women and other vulnerable groups to address their specific needs. 
West Africa’s Unseen Crisis:
A desperate and largely unknown humanitarian crisis is unfolding in the Lake Chad Basin, which includes Chad, Niger and Nigeria. It is compounded as a result of the ongoing conflict with Boko Haram and the military operations to counter them. “There are people just like you and I...and now they’ve had to pack up their lives and flee from this conflict. They’ve experienced incredible, traumatic and horrible situations…” - Oxfam's Sarah Badju.
This is Africa’s fastest growing displacement crisis – over 2.6 million people have been forced to flee their homes. Over a million children are feared to be trapped in areas under the control of Boko Haram. 3.8 million people are facing severe food insecurity and going hungry and in North East Nigeria, with over 1 million people are one step away from famine conditions. 
$40,000 can provide 800 hygiene kits for families of eight, including laundry and bath soap, menstrual items and jerry cans. Please join us in supporting Oxfam today.

WWF China

WWF logoChina’s environmental policies affect the world. A good example is the bird that undertakes the world’s longest migration, the godwit. WWF China works to protect wetlands that are a vital 'refuelling' stopover for godwits on their epic flight from New Zealand and Australia to Alaska, as well as other conservation priorities such as the giant panda.
WWF’s iconic logo is testament to their work establishing giant panda reserves. Currently WWF China is vigorously engaging with communities, businesses and government to reduce China’s carbon emissions. Beyond the immediate benefit to people’s health, curbing these emissions is critical to avoiding catastrophic and potentially irreversible climate change.

HUHA Thank You

Red Cross work in Vanuatu

With Cyclone Pam causing catastrophic devastation in Vanuatu, we've asked that our latest donation to Red Cross NZ be used exclusively to help provide relief for the people of this island nation. The type of work Red Cross is doing in Vanuatu includes the distribution of essential household items, tarpaulins, shelter toolkits, safe drinking water and health and first aid programs. They will also be rolling out longer term recovery projects to support the stronger and safer rebuilding of damaged homes and of course the restoration and strengthening of livelihoods will also be crucial due to the significant damage to crops, livestock and fisheries.
