New Zealanders are being invited to help recognize the work of the many “unsung heroes” in our ethnic communities during COVID-19.
New Zealand is home to 942,000 people who identify their ethnicity as Middle Eastern, Latin American, African, Asian, and Continental European. During the extraordinary time of the COVID-19 pandemic, community organizations representing ethnic communities worked tirelessly to meet the needs of their local communities, Minister for Ethnic Communities Jenny Salesa said in a statement on Thursday.
“When people in our communities and neighborhoods needed help and support during one of the most challenging times the country has faced, they received it,” she said.
“Much of the hard work was done behind-the-scenes,” Salesa said. She invites the public to nominate those groups that have made a real difference during this time, the contribution of which will then be acknowledged and recognized.
