team 122

We have just said aere ra (farewell) to the 122nd team that has provided service in the Cook Islands. The team were absolutely amazing in their philosophy of service and how much time and energy they graciously gave to their projects. During their time in Rarotonga they helped teach reading, science, maths, did physiotherapy in the community and at the creative centre, some construction work, rehabilitation work with stroke patients, got down and dirty at the Whale Research Centre, made book shelves, spent time entertaining some of the old Mamas and Papas, and generally helped out with anything and everything they were asked to help with. We can not thank you enough! Kia manuia e meitaki maata James and Debi
