2017 will be the last year this project receives assistance towards the purchase of land for the people in Nadawa.
This project is about the securing land and homes for 12 to 13 families who have squatting for the past 50 years. Most families earn their living from fishing and casual labours.
Progress has work has been done on the land in the form of flattening the area, identifying road sites, laying of water and sewage pipes, cables and posts for electricity; and the parishioners have also been given the green light to begin their work on the new church. The Diocese expects to purchase the land in 2017. The amount to be set aside for this project in 2017 in NZ$4,750
