Papakura woman Charlotte Te Pou says the community she loves is struggling. She is among those to receive a food parcel from a charity that traditionally focuses on natural disasters.

A charity traditionally associated with disaster relief is helping a south Auckland community with its crisis – food. 

From late 2018, the Rapid Relief Team (RRT) has provided Papakura police with emergency food boxes that contain enough food for a family of four to live on for 24 hours.
