Press Release from Te Whakaruruhau Maaori Womens Refuge Inc. Hamilton

In February 2012 Te Roopu Whakaruruhau o Nga Wahine Maori contacted our organisation for support as they feared that the National Collective of Independent Refuge Inc supported the closure of the their whare and services.

Since then we have being working alongside the collective of Te Roopu to reach the audit standard of Child Youth and Family, so that the organisation infrastructure is sound and robust.

Currently alongside two other Refuges we have recently disaffiliated from the National Collective of Independent Women’s Refuge. The decision to leave was a difficult one, collectively, the three Refuges had given between them 84 years of service to the movement.  Under the current administration, it became difficult to reconcile our aspirations and to place trust and confidence in their leadership.

We are thankful for all the support that has been given, and we would especially like to acknowledge Minister Turia.  Her commitment to whanau has been unwavering and her support to those in her “patch “ is legendary.  We are saddened that comments inferring that Minister Tauria had taken a special interest in this matter are without merit.

It is known with Maori, that in greeting each other we will take the time to know who you are and what is happening.

Again we would like to show our appreciation and tautoko to all those that keep our whanau safe and intact
