Igniting communities, creating change.


Le Va’s purpose is to support Pasifika families and communities to unleash their full potential and have the best possible health and wellbeing outcomes. They believe that the solutions lie within their own communities, so that’s where you’ll find them. They walk alongside churches, sports clubs, education centres and relevant groups with large Pasifika populations to ensure the right knowledge, skills and information is reaching the right people at the right time.


Le Va support and encourage this by carefully designing and developing evidence-based resources, tools, information, knowledge and support services for the best possible health and wellbeing outcomes. And, they do this all while recalling traditional values, and applying them safely, in a contemporary way.


The Le Va symbol is a collection of Pacific motifs portraying the strong and respectful relationships between people, organisations, communities and societies that are maintained by Va, and it conveys Le Va as a Pacific organisation. It also draws upon the colours and shapes from the natural environments of the Pacific Islands.

South Seas Healthcare is Otara’s largest Pacific health provider, delivering a range of clinic, community and social services throughout South Auckland. Our vision is excellent health and well-being for Pacific people and all communities. South Seas is a member of the Alliance Health Plus PHO (Primary Health Organisation), which is New Zealand’s only Pacific-led PHO.


The organisation was founded by a group of health professionals in February 1999, following an identified need to provide Pacific Primary Health Care to the Pacific population in Counties Manukau.


Together, the founders had a broad base of experience in service delivery, policy development and clinical skills in the primary care area.


Since its beginnings, South Seas has grown to be the largest integrated Pacific provider in Otara, where more than 45% of the population identify as being of Pacific descent (2013 Census).

Formed in 1996 as an Incorporated Society, Pasifika Medical Association was established by a group of Pacific medical professionals who identified a need for an association which brought together and provided a forum for Pacific medical professionals including doctors, medical students and other health professionals.

When the early navigators of the Pacific health sector established PMA it was intended to provide a haven to nurture and grow Pacific health professionals. As the organisation has prospered through the voluntary efforts of its executive committees, members and many sponsors and supporters, it has grown to become a leader in workforce development in the region. The commitment shown then is the same today – in fact the commitment may indeed be even stronger.


Our purpose is “Providing opportunities to enable Pacific people to reach their aspirations”.

The Pacific Child advocacy report was supported by the MAS Foundation.

The MAS Foundation was founded a century ago by a group of forward-thinking doctors. Like them, caring for the communities around us is part of our purpose.


We believe all children and families in Aotearoa New Zealand should enjoy as much good health and wellbeing as possible. But we also know that a lot gets in the way of people flourishing.


That’s where the MAS Foundation comes in.


The MAS Foundation is a philanthropic organisation working to make a difference to the health and wellbeing of people in Aotearoa New Zealand, particularly communities experiencing the most inequity.


The MAS Foundation adopted a proactive values-based approach to grant-making in 2021 following the appointment of Heads of Foundation in a Te Tiriti partnership role. This leadership model has further strengthened our journey of implementing our Te Tiriti o Waitangi commitment.


“We are no ordinary grant-maker. We don’t just give out money – we form long-term partnerships with people and organisations tackling these challenges and work to support these communities”.
