Auckland motel owner offers homeless discounted rooms

He rūma mōtēra ngāwari te utu e tukua ana ki ngā whānau kore kāinga kei Te Puea Marae e whakaruruhautia ana. Nā whai anō ngā pātai a ētahi e mea ana, mēnā e tika ana rānei ngā taunakitanga a Te Hiranga Tangata ki a rātou.

E tāwharau ana tēnei mōtēra i ngā whānau kore kainga, whēnei i tēnei kuia, whāea hoki, me tēnei papa ko Kimi mai i te marae o Te Puea.

“My son and my two mokos, I had them over the last few days here.  Which gave us our own space in our room.  I was able to cook them a kai.  And even though I know that this is a short-term stay, again, I just felt so warm, and welcomed here, and that we had our own private space to just be a family for the moment.”

He rūma mōtēra ngāwari te utu e tukua ana e te rangatira o tēnei mōtēra a John McMeekin ki ngā whānau i ahu mai i te marae o Te Puea.

“For Te Puea we've discounted it down to $399.00 for a week.”

Otia, kua ara ake ngā pātai i a McMeekin e mea ana, he iti noa te tautoko a te kāwanatanga, pēnei i te Minita Whare Papori a Paula Bennett.

“I'm concerned that the housing crisis isn't getting enough of her attention, and we should have one person managing this portfolio and stepping right up to the mark, because, you can't wait another week, every night is cold.”

Ko tā te tari Hiranga Tangata ki a Te Kāea:

  • Kei te āwhina mātou i ngā tāngata katoa e haere ana ki te marae, kia whiwhi ai i te pūtea tika, me te whakaoti i tētehi aromatawai ā whare.
  • Tokorua ngā kaimahi e wātea ana ki te āwhina i ngā whānau i te marae mō ngā kaupapa penihana me te whiwhi whare.
  • Ko te tukanga mahi i te taha o Te Puea Marae, ka tuku tōtika atu mātou i te putea tautoko ki ngā whānau e noho pōkaikaha ana.

Heoi, e rere ana te reo karanga o te marae o Te Puea ki te Pirimia, ki a John Key me ngā minita mātāmua, a Paula Bennett mā, kia toro atu ki a rātou.
