Pamela Taea gives away medicinal “akari pi” for women. She stands in front of the section where a makeshift type home was burnt to the ground last November. 21020313.
Taea delivered the plants to women at the Punanga Nui Market, after her Aunty Ripou Hosking posted the free plants on social media.
Many women also turned up to pick the akari pi plants.
In a way, Taea is giving back what she can to the community
who has given her support and assistance when their makeshift home was burnt to
the ground last November.
Her son had been living in the dwelling at the time and no
one was harmed in the fire.
However, all his belongings and a motorbike parked nearby
Taea is thankful to the community and the village of
Takuvaine who have given their support.
Funds raised from the radiothon for the family will be
presented to Taea later this week.
Taea says she and her family are fine and continue to live
with her mother in her family home in Takuvaine.
