All across Aotearoa there are thousands of former refugees doing amazing things in their communities. These are just a few of those incredible stories.
While most Kiwis stayed home during Alert Level 3 and 4 to stop the spread of COVID-19 essential people were allowed to carry on their front-facing work to ensure the country continued to run. These people included former refugees – they are Essential Kiwi Legends.
In 2018, we launched our first Kiwi Legends campaign, highlighting contribution former refugees make in New Zealand. Find our more about this amazing people below.
