Supporting our hapori

Chat’s is all about outreach into whānau Māori communities. Using the promotional trailer, we were able to pop-up in various locations where informative conversations can be had around COVID-19, in a safe environment, provide vaccination opportunities, and support whānau with information. The awesome Kaimanaki kaimahi arranges vaccine appointments and offers transport.

This initiative has currently supported 52 community members with getting either their first or second vaccination.

14/12/21 - Chat’s supported 5 whānau Māori with their second vaccination.

17/12/21 - Chat’s supported 8 whānau Māori with their first vaccination.

21/12/21 - Chat’s had a whooping 22 whānau Māori that received their first vaccination.

23/12/21 - Chat’s had another 17 more whānau Māori received their first vaccination.
