Feedback from whānau "Thank you so so much for the box of kai and toiletries. It is amazing, and we are so so grateful". "Thank you very much for the RATS test and kai we received, and it was greatly appreciated" "Shout out to the kura for organising us some kai".
We want to acknowledge Whakapai Hauora, Rangitāne o Manawatū and He Puna Hauora for the ongoing support given to our kura and our hapori.
Whakapai Hauora has been providing our whānau and tamariki with kai, hygiene and rongoā packs while they are at home isolating, and He Puna Hauora provided our Kura with access to Rapid Antigen Tests. We would like to mihi to Whakapai Hauora and He Puna Hauora for looking after our tamariki and whānau.
Best Care Whakapai Hauora is an Iwi provider who work for whānau within our rohe of Rangitane o Manawatu from a whānau ora base. The Kaihono Ora service was established as part of the COVID response to provide welfare for whānau around Manawatū. Best Care Whakapai Hauora has worked with The Ministry of Social Development and other key community partners to set up a system to provide welfare to all those isolated in these tough covid times.
According to Neitana Blissett, the Kaihono Ora, "As an organisation, it is a privilege to tautoko and awhi whānau with support from other organisations like our local food bank and other community providers to provide active support for our whanau and community."
