Moving from helping whānau out during Alert Level lockdowns to now focusing on how to deal with the new Traffic Light System and the opening of the borders of Tāmaki Makaurau for travel. Haami Piripi, Chair for Te Rūnanga o Te Rarawa admits that there is a sense of concern as we think about those looking to travel north and the potential spread of the pandemic in Te Tai Tokerau. Haami also talks about our whānau who live in Tāmaki and the many who are less fortunate financially. How do we provide them support to maintain the basics, like paying the rent and feeding the whānau.
