It’s moments like these where we realise the impact our services have. Whānau Ora is a service we provide at Pacific Homecare. It aims to deliver whānau-centred services that build on self-determination. Recognising families’ strengths to help them use these skills and abilities, so they can take ownership of their needs and manage their whānau’s lives together, successfully. Whānau Ora focuses on the whānau as a whole and empowers them to reach their goals.

Recently, we experienced the impact of our Whānau Ora services through clients, Navana and Papapuna. The sister and brother created beautiful works of art to show us what they made with the food that was delivered by our Whānau Ora team.

For dinner, they had chicken, potatoes and rice. For dessert, they had a few sweet treats; Pepsi, a juicie ice block and a cookie that they made together. The children were excited about their meals and presented a wonderful verse to share with our team.

John 6:35: Then Jesus declared, I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.

We thank you both Navana and Papapuna for sharing your delicious meals, beautiful drawings and the wonderful bible verse with us! Can we join your whānau for dinner and dessert next?
