People in the Cook Islands have big open hearts, says general secretary for the Atiu community on Rarotonga Nga Teao-Papatua.


She says she had great pleasure in hosting a radiothon on Radio Cook Islands on August 24, raising $30,600 for two buildings within the CICC mission grounds that had been gutted by fire.

The show, which ran from 12 to 6pm, saw pledges pouring in. “I had some helpers to write all the receipts and record the pledges.”

She offers a heartfelt thanks to all those who contributed, “all the CICC groups who have supported the fundraiser and Avarua CICC who contributed a huge amount toward the rebuild and the public”. 

The money was handed to CICC treasurer and Atiu Mayor Ina Mokoroa, before being deposited into the Atiu CICC bank account.
