NGĀITAKOTO - COVID-19 RESPONSE TEAM - KETE ĀWHINA (CARE PACKAGES)
E ngā uri o Ngāi Takoto, tēnā koutou katoa. Kua rāhuitia te motu, kua tīmata ngā tikanga o te taumata matāra tuawhā, ka haere tonu ēnei tikanga tae noa ki te wā ka hīkina ai e te kāwanatanga. Ahakoa to noho puni ki tō whare, ki to kāinga hoki, e mahi ana ngā marae o Ngāi Takoto ki te āwhina i a koutou o te haukāinga.
The Level 4 rāhui throughout Aotearoa means our whānau and communities are in total lockdown in an effort to reduce the spread of CORONAVIRUS COVID-19.
Whānau may struggle financially to access essential supplies over the next 4 weeks. Ngāi Takoto has a small team that will prepare kete āwhina for kaumātua, kuia and struggling whānau. The Response Team will service the rohe from Houhora South to the Awanui Straight and east to Kareponia Marae.
Kaumātua and kuia are our first priority and will receive kete āwhina early next week. Whānau who require support can fill in an online form here. Please fill in the online form so we have your details and can deliver kete āwhina to you.
NGĀI TAKOTO COVID-19 RESPONSE TEAM DELIVERY PROTOCOLS
The team understands not everyone has internet connectivity. Therefore, the team will contact our kuia and kaumātua and ensure they are added to the delivery schedule. If you are concerned about one of our elders contact 0800283353.
All kete āwhina preparation will follow strict sanitisation practice. All drop-offs will be no-contact deliveries and left at a designated area, 3 meters from the main entrance to your whare.
Please do not be whakamā to ask for help. Keep safe, keep in your bubble. The Ngāi Takoto COVID-19 Response Team are working to tautoko our people through the duration of the level 4 lockdown.
If you require food or water please contact our iwi services on 0800 283353.
In emergencies call 111 and for Covid-19 concerns call Healthline on 0800 779 997
Keep Yourselves Safe From COVID-19.
Stay safe and stay home.
