A huge mihi to you all on behalf of Te Oranga Hinengaro, Kaupapa Maori Mental Health & Addictions Service, Ngati Porou Hauora for the amazing response to provide koha kai for our whanau here in Ngati Porou. Your koha Kai was distributed to whanau in our service from Uawa right up to beautiful Te Araroa.
We appreciate you and value your contribution.

Our Pasifika community receives the gift of food allocated to PICT Gisborne weekly and this has been a tremendous help to the Pasifika families during the pandemic. This has gone a long way to relieving pandemic stress and other psychosocial issues which can come from anxiety over the provision of food for the family as a majority of our earners are seasonal workers, and particularly during the lockdown most are not able to work.
