Giving with no expectation of return
Through words and actions, strong whānau let each member know that they are loved and appreciated on a daily basis.
Aroha is all about giving unconditionally. It is the basis of whānau that are strong, and in which people can live with a clear sense of identity.
What is aroha?
“It is like breathing in all the mamae, hurt and worries of another person, and breathing out love, joy, hope.”
“The birth of my son, my partner’s pregnancy, and providing for my whānau.”
“Hanging out with cousins, being together, and feeling loved and supported.”
