Home Made in Nelson

A Nelson family of six achieved their dream of home ownership recently with the help of Habitat for Humanity International and 11 American volunteers.

Their gentle, cheerful daily presence was a major reason the trip yielded so much pleasure and gratification. We worked with the very people benefiting from this collective labour.”
