We are Te Hā o Hine-ahu-one - The Palmerston North Women's Health Collective. Our vision, moemoeā: a future where every woman/wahine understands, cares for, and is able to heal her body, mind, spirit, whānau, community and te taiao the natural environment. Our mission, te matawhānui: to empower wāhine/women and their whānau to have more control over their health and fertility.
We believe that with adequate support and information all wāhine/women are capable of making their own decisions about their bodies, and have that right. We strive for social justice, cultural safety and respect for diversity in the broadest sense. We are committed to providing a free service and helping wāhine/women and their whānau to access other free and lower cost services.
How we are Funded
Ongoing funding is paramount to our continued service.
Te Hā o Hine-ahu-one Palmerston North Women’s Health Collective Inc. is a registered charity (no: CC24790). As a non-profit organisation we rely solely on funding and donations to allow us to provide services to women in need.You may have heard that after many years we are looking for alternative funding as the MDHB has terminated our women's health contract. This impending loss of funding will significantly impact the women in our community who use our services. We have an inter-generational reach with women, their children and often their grandchildren. WE are looking at all of our options in this respect. One option we are exploring is Give a little, the money raised will be used for operational expenses to keep our service running. I have attached the links relevant to our news :) Thank you and we look forward to seeing you in our centre soon!
