Residents of Victoria’s Black Saturday bushfires move into new homes
Two families affected by the Black Saturday bushfires, four years ago, have moved into the 25 homes being built by Habitat for Humanity, at Yea in Victoria.
Habitat for Humanity is a not-for-profit organisation, and it is offering buyers an interest-free loan for the first 10 years of their mortgage.
Former Homewood resident, Michelle Mussett, a mother of three young children, says that the 2009 bushfires made her reconsider where her family should live.
“We were nowhere near as affected as many were, but what it did do, was it was a huge reminder, how important families are and people’s futures, because you just never know what’s going to happen.
“I wanted to make sure that I had a really safe and secure future for ther children and this is how I can do it,” Michelle said.
Habitat for Humanity Victoria, said that all 25 homes are expected to be completed by late next year.
