Standing Up to COVID & Criticism Recognised

June 27, 2022, 7:10 p.m.

For two years, the Taitokerau Border Control worked to protect the communities from the most serious impacts of COVID-19. Last week they were recognised by the Minister of Health in the 2022 Volunteer Awards.

Nyze Manuel and Reuben Taipari talked about the significant challenges their volunteers faced during that time and also share the motivations that sat behind the movement. They are proud that they were able to delay COVID-19 entering into vulnerable communities in the North and give everybody time to develop their own strategies to protect themselves.
