We strongly believe that LOVE is the most powerful force and we have already seen how powerful New Zealender’s can be when we all come together as a unity to support each other! We’ve weathered crises in the past; flu epidemics, floods, earthquakes. We have done it by caring and supporting each other. We have stepped out of our individualistic way of being into unified force. And that is how we’ll get through COVID too.

We would love you to know that self-isolation doesn’t have to mean you are alone.

We can use this crisis as an opportunity to make us stronger, as individuals and as a community. Contact us if you need any support – vogelmornbc@gmail.com.

We are putting together ideas and strategies how best we can support you and we’ll be sharing those ideas and activities with you.
