Aroha for Ukraine Book Launch Event
Можливо, дехто з вас пам’ятає наш проект Ароха для України.
Ми раді нарешті оголосити презентацію нашої фізичної книги в Окленді 12 Серпня, та запросити всіх, хто зробив внесок у проект і надіслав нам свою АРОХА (любов), а також нашу українську громаду в Новій Зеландії та ново-прибульців з України.
Будь ласка, зверніть увагу, що реєстрація є обовʼязковою через обмежену кількість місць.
Ми плануємо роздати книги новоприбулим, промови і привітання від почесних гостей, страви, музичні українські виступи, а також ігри та дитячі заходи… Тож приєднуйтесь всією родиною.
Ласкаво просимо принести страву до спільного чаювання за бажанням.

Xmas Gift Donations for Refugees 2022 (archived)
With the silly season fast approaching, Mahi for Ukraine is organising a Xmas Picnic for the Ukrainian newcomers in Auckland with gift-giving, food, and some good old Kiwi Xmas summer vibes.
As most of our friends & supporters know, these newcomers (even though are called “refugees”) are not technically considered refugees and as such do not receiv government support. This will be their first Christmas away from home, and we imagine that gift-giving is the last thing on their and their families’ minds. So we wanted to show them some Aroha, and bring at least some normality back into their lives.
If you or your organisation would like to support this event and donate some gifts towards it, please contact us before Friday 16 December to coordinate this. Thank you for your generosity this holiday season!
And if you are a Ukrainian who would like to attend this event, please DM us on Facebook for event details (time and location).
