Mufti Mania Days

Each year the New Zealand Catholic Primary Principals Association (NZCPPA) organises a Mufti Mania Day to raise money for poor and vulnerable communities. Since 2007 they have partnered with Caritas to support a project.

Mufti Mania fundraising done in 2013 will help children and their families in Tonga face the challenge of climate change, by improving water supplies and tackling coastal erosion.

In the low-lying Ha’apai group of islands, people are having to move further inland away from higher tides and bigger waves. Ha’apai also experiences drought every year.

Caritas Tonga is employing a climate change officer in Ha’apai to work with children and the wider community, to identify water needs and sources and make improvements to water supplies. They will also work with the Government on ways to deal with coastal erosion.

Mufti Mania funds from 2013 will support the work of this person in schools.

Please send your donations for 2013 to: Kathy Moy-Low, Principal, NZCPPA Treasurer, Holy Cross School, 8 Lavelle Rd, Henderson, Auckland 0612.
