I was told about Kāpō Māori Aotearoa by whānau who are also members. I have Keratoconus and after over ten years of jumping through hoops and talking to the wrong people, my whānau urged me to get support, so I referred myself to Kāpō Māori Aotearoa.
It's been one of the most enjoyable journeys thus far, I am now more independent, have a greater sense of self and the incentive to share the growth gained with others in my community.
