What your donations could help pay for:
Manaaki Matakaōa are all very passionate about our home and work, and it costs a lot. Our remoteness means every day costs like petrol, utility services like plumbing and electrical, pharmaceuticals and groceries are a lot higher than other places.
We have limited roading access (just one trunkline) which is often cut off by severe storms, and climate change means that these severe weather events are occurring more often, every year. Infrastructure like power, internet, roading, and water is very insecure (or in some cases non-existent) and prone to disruption.
Manaaki Matakāoa urgently requires funding support in order to maintain an appropriate level of care that responds to these unique intersecting challenges.
All proceeds go directly towards supporting our provision of care for our community in Matakāoa.
Ngā mihi nui!

FLOOD APPEAL UPDATE
Manaaki Matakāoa believe in transparent reporting, and so we are very happy to be able to share with you all the funds that were deposited in our flood appeal for Matakāoa, Tokomaru, Te Puia and Waipiro, and how they are being spent. From all of our communities we wish to send a BIG mihi to all who supported our appeal! The funds will ensure that our communities don't fall out of communication again, and will be able to direct crucial support when it's most needed during natural disasters.
