Distribution has been a massive undertaking given the scale of the need, the damage to infrastructure, disruption to normal transport systems, and the remoteness of some of the islands and villages.
These kits are designed to include everything that is needed for basic survival and are valued at $600. The 600 ERKs must now be replaced with urgency, ready for the next disaster.
The Rotary Club of Tawa has donated three. If you or your company could help by donating towards this great cause we would be very grateful. Donations can be made through:

The Rotary Club of Tawa was chartered on 4 April 1970 and would have been celebrating its first 50 years this weekend. These celebrations are now on hold until later in the year.
In the meantime, publication of the 50th anniversary book, “Creating and Enhancing Communities: the first 50 Years of the Rotary Club of Tawa”, will still go ahead.

In her foreword to the book, edited by Pat Waite, Club President Judith Gray writes that, despite the many changes and challenges over the years, the club’s spirit of service has persisted.

“It has a history of vigorously supporting local and global projects, helping young people take up scholarships and programmes that have given them a chance to grow and develop into citizens of the world.”

The book touches on many of these projects and the people involved and will be available for the public to purchase in due course.

Club President Judith Gray says that, as community leaders, the Board felt this to be the correct course of action to take in order to look after people and help slow the spread of Covid-19 through the community. Unfortunately, this has also meant postponing the club’s upcoming 50th Anniversary celebrations.
“However, if Rotarians can be of assistance to members of the Tawa Community during this time we will do what we can to help while also maintaining adherence to Government guidelines. Look after yourselves and your families and look out for your neighbours. To quote the Prime Minister, we will get through this.”
