Covid19. Western Bay. New Zealand

Council General International

St Vincent de Paul in Western Bay has hit the ground running since the first week in lock-down, helping 50 families a day and giving away over a ton of food a week and re- homed 10 families.

Conference members over 70 who are self-isolating at home are connecting with clients and volunteers by phone regularly. Non-contact delivery of essential items is hot on the list at the moment. They have been incredibly humbled by parishioners in the community who are offering support and stepping up to help out. We are keeping our faith strong and supporting one another.
