Recovery relief to help the people of Waiohiki
Waiohiki, Hawke's Bay
Waiohiki has been greatly affected by Cyclone Gabrielle, thankfully our whānau are all safe, but many now homeless, with homes, urupa and kohanga now devastated. It will be a long road to recovery, clearing the area, rehousing whānau, needless to say in the short term, shelter, food and clothing. We are grateful for any contribution.
Waiohiki is a small village between Napier and Hastings. In the early hours of the morning, many people throughout the village were saved by a Ngāti Paarau hapu member, with over 120 taking refuge at Waiohiki Marae, and up to 70 more taking refuge where they could.
This money will go towards whānau who are in need and have been made homeless and to support the clearing, cleaning, recovery and rebuilding of Waiohiki. The money will be distributed through the Waiohiki Marae Board of Trustees.

we want to thank you for your generous donation to the Waiohiki recovery efforts after Cyclone Gabrielle. The whānau have spent many days cleaning up, with so many generous volunteers pitching in a hand and helping where they can. Many whānau are still at Waipatu Marae, and others are with whānau members. Again, we would like to thank you,
Jade on behalf of Waiohiki Marae
