Kia ora all, a friend's relative of mine from India contacted her about this family in Auckland. She got in touch with them Yesterday morning and have been with them in the hospital since afternoon.

Their story: moved to NZ 3 years ago with wife and a young daughter. Son was born on 4th May this year through c-section. 3 weeks ago JP’s speech started slurring and doctors diagnosed 3 brain tumours. He is currently unresponsive. Family doesn’t know many people in NZ and with him not being able to work and wife on maternity leave, they can do with any help we all can provide.

Friend has started a givealittle fund page.Any contributions welcome.

Hi Auckland,

Auckland has topped the global rankings of liveability, rising 11 places to take the top spot.

The survey, commissioned by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), gives mathematical weight to such a claim. New Zealand's world-leading response to the spread of Covid-19 has been cited as one of the leading factors in the significant jump in rankings.

The EIU's index rates the living conditions and comprises 30 factors grouped into five categories: stability, health care, culture and environment, education and infrastructure.
