Te Putahitanga o Te Waipounamu Launch – Whakatu

This organisation  was established to lead the development and integration of health and social services in Te Waipounamu. Our aim is to provide Leadership, Advocacy and Development to ensure that all Māori living in Te Waipounamu are healthy and have access to the support and services they require.

Te Putahitanga o Te Waipounamu – (The South Island Whanau Ora Commissioning Agency) are holding 6 launches throughout Te Waipounamu simultaneously on Saturday 26 July 2014, at Murihiku, Otakou, Tai Poutini, Whakatu, Wairau and Otautahi.  The purpose of the day is to celebrate the launch of Te Putahitanga o Te Waipounamu with whanau.  We are aiming for the day to be fun, engaging and interactive as much as possible. To provide free health checks (blood pressure, diabetes checks, sight and hearing tests) for there to be free kai and of course for there to be performances from each of our Waitaha kapa ropu, pending availability.

Te Putahitanga o Te Waipounamu – (The South Island Whanau Ora Commissioning Agency) are holding the Whakatu launch at Victory Community Centre at 10am to 2pm – Saturday 26 July 2014, and we would love to have representation from your organisation or roopu to join us for this day in Whakatu.

We would welcome your support at the Whakatu event.  It would be great to have you there and I have attached a copy of the panui for the event.
