The country has moved to COVID-19 Alet Level 2 but the need is still out there.

Northland iwi Ngātiwai, Ngāti Hine and Ngāpuhi have set aside past differences to deliver food and hygiene packs to hundreds of whānau through the lockdown, and that’s set to continue.

Ngātiwai chair Haydn Edmonds says as a lot of iwi members live in Whangarei, it was an effective way to use resources.

Tomorrow they’ll trial delivering hot meals to kaumatua and kuia, in response to requests from whānau.

"Our experience has been that sometimes you can deliver too much, and you can't deliver too much to kaumatua because they don't have anywhere to store it and they don’t eat it all," he says.

Ngāti Wai is also looking at projects to keep some of its people in work, such as renovating marae.
