The Covid-19 pandemic has shown us all how quickly life can change. For many New Zealanders, this has meant job losses or significant pay cuts – and the family pantry suddenly empty.

For the past two months, there’s been a huge demand for food parcels from local charities around the country. Find out what we’ve been doing behind the scenes to support these charities who are helping New Zealanders get back on their feet.

During this time of COVID-19, it’s important we remember the different signs of stroke and that stroke is always a medical emergency.

One New Zealander every hour experiences stroke. But if you think F.A.S.T. you could save someone’s life and give them the best chance of recovery.

F - Face - Is it drooping on one side?
A - Arm - Is one arm weak?
S - Speech - Is it mixed up, slurred or lost?
T - Take Action - Call 111 immediately.

Think F.A.S.T., act fast, and keep looking out for each other.

Thank you, from the Stroke Foundation of New Zealand.

Hi Neighhours,

It's been a tough last few weeks, right? When life gets hard and the world gets scary, it's our loved ones we turn to for support.

But this extraordinary coronavirus pandemic is different. Many of us can't see our most special friends and whānau because we want to keep them safe, and we want to get through this as a nation by following social distancing and Covid-19 Alert Level 3 rules.

While thousands of people are returning to work, visiting friends and family outside of your bubble may still be off the cards for some time longer.

Do you have a message for someone you can't see in person? A shout out to a sibling or best friend? A much-loved and missed grandparent? A new baby you need to virtually cuddle?

Level 3 Love Letters is an opportunity to share a video message for a loved one on Stuff.

You can upload your video here so we can share it with them and New Zealand
