Volunteers needed by Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity needs volunteers for a housing repair project in Christchurch.

It is looking for 200 people to carry out minor jobs on green zone houses of people who are on a limited income or who have little or no insurance.

The construction charity says it needs all levels of skills to make houses weathertight and clean them up.

Habitat aims to work on about 200 homes but says it may keep going if the volunteers and funds keep coming.

Accommodation is available and some discounted flights are being negotiated with Air New Zealand.
