Far too many of us are living in houses that are making us ill. The whole purpose of a home is to protect its occupants from outside conditions and keep them healthy.
Asthma NZ has embarked on a journey to understand the problem. A few weeks bank we spoke about a young family in Papakura. Last Thursday, we took them for lunch to learn more about the home Lindy and Joe purchased 10 years ago.
To hear about the impact this home is having on their lives is devastating. If the building sector can't build houses to keep us healthy we need to learn what needs to be done to do it.
