A fun-filled day hosted Camp Quality 2021, with loads of activities and a cook up at Riversdale Beach, in aid of children with cancer.
Fun in the sea, sun, and sand, with some of the kids learning to surf, while others were given tours by the Red Knights Motorcycle Club and many other activities! Rapid Relief Team NZ was pleased to provide a burger lunch and cold drinks. Some very tired and happy kids and parents/carers by the end of the day! 😆👍🤪

Help in the villages of Kenya
Lily and friends from hopeinthevillage.org delivered soap from beyond skin deep and bibles from Rapid Relief Team NZ for 15 homes to share the hope.

It is humbling to see the faith and cheerfulness of this small community despite their poverty and ability to overcome some critical medical conditions. We are looking forward to distributing the remaining bibles and soap over the next few weeks! 🥰🤩
