Help restore and rebuild the mana of the Waihape Whanau Urupa (Cemetery)
The destruction and desecration of a family cemetery shouldn't be something anyone should go through. All help is appreciated.Nationwide
On the 19/05/2018 Kaye Wesely was on her way to a funeral and decided to drop into her family urupa in Raupunga to pay respects to her brother.
When she arrived she was shocked and saddened to find destruction everywhere. Someone had gone through and systemically broken and destroyed most of the headstones in the cemetery. This act is unthinkable to many people out there and after the video going viral many people offered their heartfelt condolences and were wanting a way to help restore the headstones to support the Waihape family.
As I'm sure you'll understand this is a very difficult time for the family involved. It is our goal to fix this as soon as possible so the family can heal the hurt created and fix what was broken.
Callum McLeay's involvement
I run a facebook page called: Feels Like Home Bro. We posted a video of a family cemetery that was destroyed. It went viral and I offered to run a fundraising campaign with the permission of the family through our platform. We were heartbroken and wanted to help this family restore their loved ones resting place.
Use of funds
The main goal for the money raised from this campaign will be used to tidy up and restore the destruction caused and to help the family move forward and honour their tupuna (ancestors) in the way it was before the headstones were destroyed.
