Infor and the BNZ Crusaders pitch in for Habitat Hand-Up Chch
- Tuesday 9th June 2015
A new community is being built in Bromley thanks to Habitat for Humanity and corporate partner, Infor. Crusaders players and staff have joined with Infor employees in rolling up their sleeves over the past month and helping to build 11 new homes for Habitat Hand-up Christchurch.
The $7.6m project involves the construction of 21 homes to re-house families in need following the devastating earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 which destroyed 20,000 homes. Habitat Hand-up Christchurch will see families housed in decent homes, eliminating the health issues faced in their current houses and putting them on the path to home ownership over a ten-year period.
