Kia ora e te iwi
Kia ora te kaupapa e karanga nei
Haere mai haere mai haere mai
Ngā mihi ki o tātou tini aitua
Kua hinga, kua hoki atu ki tua o te ārai Haere ngā mate
Haere haere haere Rātou ki a rātou
Tātou ki a tātou te hunga ora
He mihi mahana
Tēnā tātou katoa.
Hē aha te mea nui ō te ao?
He tangata! He tangata! He tangata!
What is the most important thing in the world?
It is people! It is people! It is people!
About the programme- Kia Ora E te Iwi Whakapapa
Here at Te Kāhui Matepukupuku o Aotearoa (Cancer Society NZ) we are committed to do our best to help support whānau to live life well after a cancer diagnosis.
Thus, to support and awhi whānau Māori across the motu, we have worked alongside iwi and Māori health providers from around Aotearoa New Zealand to develop a kaupapa Māori programme to be delivered with Māori.
In 2011 the first kaupapa Māori programme, Kia ora - E te iwi was adopted from the Living Well with Cancer programme.
In 2020 we updated the content of the programme and included more recent information and resources.
Kia Ora E te Iwi helps whānau to increase knowledge about cancer and its treatment, about services and support available, about how to cope with side effects and how to live life well.
However, the high point of Kia Ora E te Iwi is whānau coming together, to kōrero, in a safe environment to share and support each other.
We look forward to the opportunity to work with Māori health providers and the DHB to deliver our Cancer Society programme “Kia ora – E te iwi” to whānau.
We are planning a number of Kia Ora E te Iwi hui for 2021.
