Vivere New Zealand continues to help Samoa

Vivere New Zealand continues to help Samoa


Two Trustees from the Vivere New Zealand Trust are preparing to head over to Samoa to help equip and deliver training to ambulance response staff.

This trip is in addition to the visit the Trustees did last year where they provided training in basic emergency care. This time the Trustees Byron Williams and Celeita Chippindale will provide training that will have a strong focus on health and hygiene training for the ambulance personal.

This teaching will compliment the modules of learning delivered in 2013, which was the ambulance development programme, which covered basic ambulance skills including airway management, CPR, and dealing with medical emergencies.

As part of this trip Vivere will be delivering another shipment of medical goods some of which will be used as part of the training, and other will complement further supplies that Vivere has donated in the past and has planned for further shipments.

Vivere is devoted specifically to enhancing ambulance care rather than hospital aid, and during the time that Vivere has been working with ambulance responders in Samoa there has already been a notable change in the care that the Ambulance response officers can provide.

The team leaves for Samoa on the 11th May 2014.

Greens: Oil Drilling Face-Off With Labour

The plan is the second component of the Party’s environmental priority this election: Rivers clean enough to swim in again, and beaches safe from oil spills.

The Green Party loves New Zealand and will create a cleaner environment where our beaches remain open for swimming, not closed for oil spills.

The key policy points in the Green Party’s plan to protect our beaches from oil spills are to:
1. Prohibit deep sea oil drilling;
2. Implement compulsory shipping lanes for coastal shipping;
3. Build Maritime New Zealand’s oil spill response capability; and
4. Introduce a stronger legal framework so that when accidents do happen, the New Zealand taxpayer does not have to pay for the clean-up. More>>
