Our vision / Moemoeā

We’re working on the ground, among some of the worst affected communities.

The scale of this natural disaster is unprecedented, and the recovery needs of those who we are working with are vast. Along with accommodation support, we anticipate families we work with will be needing bedding, furniture, whiteware and appliances, children’s toys and stationery, along with basics like clothing and personal items, pantry staples and fresh food.

In the last year:

Our mission in Child and Family Services is to enhance the mana of tamariki and whānau through relationship and connection.
