Kia Haumaru Te Iwi – United against COVID-19
Kia tau ngā manaakitanga a te mea ngaro
ki runga ki tēnā, ki tēnā o tātou
Kia mahea te hua mākihikihi
kia toi te kupu, toi te mana, toi te aroha, toi te Reo Māori
kia tūturu, ka whakamaua kia tīna! Tīna!
Hui e, Tāiki e!
There are so many great things about whānaungātangā: it’s core values include a wide range of relationships, like whānau and friendships grown from a shared kaupapa or interest.
Whānaungātangā has been described as the ‘relationship-glue’ that causes whanau to gather round, provide support and put the needs of the group before the needs of the individual. It is this sense of belonging and inclusion, that enable the kaupapa to flourish as whanau are able to draw on each others strengths and resources.
With this in mind, Te Rōpu Whakakaupapa Urutā, is a kaupapa that we recommend worthy of scoping as they are also guiding whanau Māori through the COVID-19 pandemic.
Te Rōpu Whakakaupapa Urutā is made up of Aotearoa’s leading Māori medical and health experts including Primary Care Specialists, Public Health experts, Public Health Physicians, Māori Nurses and iwi leaders. The information available from their website has been developed for whānau māori to ensure that we can cope with the pandemic levels.
To access their website and resources, please see below: ‘For Whānau Māori and For Iwi Māori’.
Ma pango, Ma whero, Ka Oti Whanaungatangā enables the fostering of tuakana/teina relationships and reciprocity.
