Hineuru Iwi Trust supports efforts on the ground
The Trust is pleased to advise the iwi that the first lot of supplies was airlifted into Te Haroto yesterday. This is a fantastic result, and we welcome the support being provided by CDEM.
Rest assured; your chairman, trustees, CE and operations team are working in the background to ensure outcomes and support for those who reside in the Bay. We know that up to 60% of Hineuru iwi members live in the Hawke’s Bay, and we want to ensure that adequate and equitable support is being provided.
In saying this, to assist in the immediate efforts on the ground, the Trust has pledged $10,000 to be paid to Te Taiwhenua O Te Whanganui Ā Orotu. In addition, the trustees on the ground will conduct welfare checks with Hineuru whānau in Napier and Hastings. This will allow us to see where we can lobby for additional support and/or potentially fill any shortcomings where necessary.
