Wow! What a Year we have just had especially celebrating our 30 years as a Community based NGO at our December Graduation and Christmas function.
Thank you so much to our Mama’s who started the work back then and the vision they saw in serving elderly and people with Disabilities. Meitaki maata to Mam Pi Elisaia and the late Mama Matarena we simply love you deeply and it is our goal to carry on our services to our community for at least the next 30 years.
To Hali Konelio, our Employee of the month for December, you have served Pacific Homecare also for those many years as one of our first employees and you continue to serve every week congratulations and you are simply an amazing person.
To all of our wonderful workers who graduated with “Everyday Leaders” Certificates and our national level 2, 3 and 4 graduates well done for 2018, so let’s continue to challenge ourselves with new goals for the New Year again we are so proud of you all and all that you do for our customers.
A special mention to Mama John one of our Whanau Ora Navigators who also graduated from the Everyday Leaders course but also won the Champion Trainee Award from Skills Highway Awards this year from over 7,000 trainees who participate across many industries in New Zealand, well done.
As we head into the festive season, please keep yourselves, family and friends safe and well, also pop-in and see someone who may be on their own this Christmas and New Year it is amazing what a smile and a cup of tea can do to warm the heart.
On behalf of our Chairperson Louisa Ryan, our Board members Annette Karepa, Caren Rangi and Mama Pi, we love you all and have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year with your family and friends.
