Kam na mauri & Greetings. We are the Wellington Kiribati Catholic Community (WKCC) and have known Fr. Ruatamaki Ambo over 10 years as a visiting priest. He has helped our community in so many ways by providing spiritual and pastoral services as well as sharing his musical talents. He inspired our young people to understand the importance of spirituality and cultural identity in their lives and how appropriate integration of the two can enhance their holistic development and well-being. We also know that he has done the same for other Kiribati Catholic communities throughout New Zealand and Kiribati. He is currently serving as chaplain for the Auckland Kiribati Catholic Community (AKCC).

Sadly, Fr. Ruatamaki desperately needs dialysis but unfortunately this is not available in our home country of Kiribati. WKCC would like to show our appreciation by helping raise funds for his dialysis treatment and also help the AKCC who are currently his main financial supporters. We are asking you to help us save Fr. Ruatamaki's life with your kind donations. Any amount will go a long way in giving him a second chance at a much needed quality of life. Kam bati n rabwa & Thank you very much.
