The Horowhenua/Ōtaki Children’s Team

The ability to collectively support our whanau was made very evident to us in January. Two of our whanau were assisisted to move into new properties and this highlighted their need for household items.

Our children’s team administrator sent an email out to networks asking for donations of bedding, linen, clothing and general items. It was forwarded to MCH and the PHO and what happened was amazing. The next day a couch was delivered, a week later a carload of itmes came from the PHO and MCH staff. Thanks to their generosity the children’s team was able to assist not only the whanau within the Children’s team but also whanau working with Te Runanga o Raukawa.
