COVID Medical Kits for Whānau


With COVID-19 Omicron now circulating in our communities and likely to spread quickly, we’re all being advised to prepare ourselves with at-home resources to support us should we catch the virus.

For many of us that is easily achieved by adding a few items to our weekly shop. But for whānau who are already struggling to make ends meet on a daily basis, there is simply no money left over to prepare themselves for the coming threat of Omicron.

At Who Did You Help Today, we would like to help whānau who contract COVID-19 by distributing COVID kits through our network of Homework Club schools. In usual times, we would provide volunteer support and resources to help akonga at these low decile schools with their learning but, since COVID reached our shores, we have moved to providing whatever assistance school principals and teachers tell us is most urgent.

With your kind support, we will put together kits with items such as paracetamol, ibuprofen (for adults and tamariki), throat lozenges, electrolyte replacements, hand sanitiser and tissues.

The contents of packs may vary depending upon the availability of stock (which is obviously challenging in the current environment), but we will make the packs available to schools for principals and teachers to provide to specific whānau who need them.

If you are able to help, we would very much appreciate your donation.
