Unuhia te rito o te harakeke kei hea te komako e ko, e kii mai koe ki au, he aha te mea nui I te ao, maaku e ki atu, he tangata…he tangata…he tangata…

When I first started at Hauora six years ago as the community nurse, a wise woman said to me “e hoa, you can have all the qualifications in the world but if you don’t have a relationship with whanau, then you have nothing”. My hope is that I have nurtured the relationships built with whanau” and therefore enabled invidual/whanau tino rangatiratanga/self determination.
