Mother and pepi

The support service for mothers and their pepi targets those mothers who have no support network of their own (such as partner, family, etc). This service has a particular emphasis on Maori woman with babies aged between zero and two years old and their whanau.

“The most beautiful necklace a mother can wear is not gold or gems, but her child’s arms around her neck. ”
