Waka Hourua Community Initiative: Best Care Whakapai Hauora Charitable Trust.
by Kahu McClintock
The Best Care Whakapai Hauora (Whakapai Hauora) is the mana whenua health, disability support and social service arm of Tanenuiarangi Manawatū Incorporated, the iwi authority for Rangitaane O Manawatū. Whakapai Hauora has identified that within Mid Central District Health Board (DHB) it is the small rural communities that most lack the capacity, resources and support when it comes to talking about issues such as suicide, supporting tāngata whaiora who are suicidal, responding as a community when suicide occurs and then supporting whānau in the post-vention phase. For this reason Whakapai Hauora wanted to focus on working with the communities of Dannevirke, Foxton and Shannon.
