More about habitat
Habitat works to break the poverty cycle - empowering those in need by providing them with safe affordable housing. 
In Australia, Habitat partners with families in need to build affordable housing, provide disaster accommodation and renovation, and assist families and communities to rebuild after bushfires floods and storms.
To this end, Habitat received a donation of $27,000 from Rotary District 9810 to assist after the storms in the Dandenong Ranges.
