Michael Kemp tragically passed away on Sunday following a scooter accident in Rarotonga. Unfortunately it is a very expensive cost to bring his body home and we would love to be able to cover this cost to remove the stress from his grieving family at this time.

Before Michael's body can be released from Rarotonga a fee of $10,500 must be paid to cover this cost.

Michael was a fun loving, positive person who will be remembered by all who had crossed paths with him.

All funds will go directly to covering these expenses and Michael's mother, Elizabeth.

*Per givealittle.co.nz request, Michael did not have travel insurance cover.

TourismHQ's involvement

We would like to assist Michael's family in having his body returned to New Zealand

Use of funds

The funds will be used to cover the cost to get Michael's body home along with funeral arrangements with any further funds going directly to Michael's Mum, Elizabeth
