New charity

for vision loss


• By Bea Gooding

AFTER BEING diagnosed with

eye conditions causing gradual

vision loss, Chrissie Whitfield

struggled to find a place for

emotional support.

Her experiences following

diagnosis inspired her to found

#Blindsided NZ, a charity to

connect people affected by vision

loss together to share stories, exchange

information and provide

referrals to other agencies.

The Somerfield resident is

now raising funds to set up the

initiative as a charitable trust in

order to provide a free service

to those accessing the support.

“When I was diagnosed, it

was difficult to know where to

go. I ended up searching for

groups around NZ but there

weren’t any,” she said.

Diagnosed initially with mild

macular degeneration - where

the central portion of the retina

wears down - she did not respond

to treatment.

She went to another specialist

and was later diagnosed with

central serous chorioretinopathy;

a build-up of fluid causing

further vision loss.

She said her eye conditions

were caused by consistent use of

steroids which helped manage

her asthma.

“I was terrified. I’ve never

gotten the eyesight back that

I lost, but there have been

improvements after months of

lasers and injections,” she said.

“My mother was diagnosed

in the late 70s with macular

degeneration and her vision is

poor. She’s been providing me

with lots of support, she’s my

role model.”

Ms Whitfield currently ran

a support group online under

the same name and had met

members from around the

country going through a similar


It was a place to ask

questions and offered hope and

friendship as well as a place to

find important resources about

various eye conditions.

ROLE MODEL: Chrissie Whitfield and her mother, Ngaire Whitfield are making sure no one falls

through the cracks in the vision loss community.

Housing agency finds ways

to better support community

KĀINGA ORA supported more

than 42,000 people through

wellbeing calls during Covid-19,

prompting the Government

agency to change the way it

works with them.

With workers unable to be

thousands of calls to check up on

those in public housing.

Because of this, they are

working to understand the root

to live well in their homes, moving

away from a transactional

approach to one focused on being

kind and compassionate

For Shirley, hearing a familiar

voice during lockdown was

enough to help her get through.

“I do spend time alone when I’m

home because, sadly, I don’t see

much of my family,” she said.

“Hearing a friendly voice on

the phone, simply asking ‘How

are you?’, was lovely.”

She was contacted by her

tenancy manager, Renee, when

Covid-19 meant the Kāinga Ora

team could not spend the time

in their communities as they

ordinarily would.

The agency was able to put

Vision loss charity

aims to fill a gap

• From page 1

“Some people don’t understand

the impact of losing that vision is

on your life, and not being able to

do the things you love anymore,”

she said.

“I’m a strong person, but I

balled my eyes out. I had all these

plans - what did this mean now?”

Her vision for #Blindsided

NZ as a charity was to provide

that same level of support, but

having a charitable status meant

they could apply for funding and


Having the extra funding

meant that they could also

provide low vision assessments,

coaching and referrals to established

agencies in conjunction

with the emotional support.

Said Ms Whitfield: “Moving

forward, various clinics, DHBs

and agencies across the country

will work with #Blindsided NZ as

a trusted partner to ensure that

clients have end-to-end support

throughout their journey.

“We aim to fill a gap in the vision

loss client pathway from prediagnosis

to supported living and

beyond; we don’t want anyone

falling through the cracks.”

Chrissie Whitfield

She encouraged people to donate

to the cause because “every

single one of us knows someone

with vision loss.”

“If people don’t have emotional

support, they can’t move forward

and are caught in a life of negativity

and fear.”

Tooth and Veil

the life and times of the new Zealand dental nurse

by noel o’hare

The story of the young women charged with waging war on our nation’s

poor teeth. In 1921, when the School Dental Service was established, New

Zealand embarked on a unique social experiment:

improving the terrible state of the nation’s teeth. Set up by veterans of the

First World War, the service — focused on ‘battling Bertie Germ’ —

was run like a military operation and the all-female dental nurses were

treated like foot-soldiers: underpaid, overworked and poorly resourced.

Eventually they rebelled.

In this lively history, Noel O’Hare details the nurses’ experiences on the

front line of dental health, and explores what that reveals. about our

society’s attitudes to women, work and children’s health.

Know Your Place

by Golriz Ghahraman

The story of a child refugee who faced her fears, found her home and

accidentally made history when she was just nine, Golriz Ghahraman

and her parents were forced to flee their home in Iran. After a terrifying and

uncertain journey, they landed in Auckland where they were able to seek

asylum and - ultimately - create a new life.

In this open and intimate account, Ghahraman talks about making a home

in Aotearoa New Zealand, her work as a human rights lawyer, her United

Nations missions, and how she became the first refugee to be elected to the

New Zealand Parliament.

Passionate and unflinching, Know Your Place is a story about breaking

barriers, and the daily challenges of prejudice that shape the lives of women

and minorities. At its heart, it’s about overcoming fear, about family, and

about finding a place to belong.

The Splendid and the Vile

a saga of Churchill, Family and defiance during the Blitz

By erik larson

A brilliant account of how Britain’s most iconic leader set about unifying

the nation at its most vulnerable moment.

Larson follows Churchill as prime minister through the fraught meetings

and air raids of London’s darkest year, and Churchill as family man

into his home, where tensions were just as complicated. Drawing on

once-secret intelligence reports and diaries, The Splendid and the Vile

takes readers back to a time of true leadership, when a leader of strategic

brilliance and perseverance bound a country, and a family, together.

Katipo Joe – Blitzkrieg

by Brian Falkner

Young Joe is living in pre-WWII Berlin, with his British father and NZ

mother, attending school and witnessing the excitement of his friends

who are enthusiastically joining the Hitler Youth Movement. Joe feels

uncomfortable with the growing mistreatment of local Jews, and after the

arrest of his father as a spy, he is forced to escape from Berlin with his

mother. Joe is separated from his mother and evacuated to New Zealand,

and, while war looms in Europe, he is frustrated by his distance from the

action, and his inability to do anything about finding his father. After a

harrowing route back to Europe, Joe attempts to infiltrate the Hitler Youth

movement in Germany while at the same time searching for his mother

and father in wartime Berlin.

One Two Three Four: The Beatles in Time

by Craig Brown

On April 10th 2020, it will be exactly 50 years since Paul McCartney

announced the break-up of the Beatles. At that point, we will be at the

same distance in time from 1970 as 1970 was from 1920, the year Al

Jolson’s ‘Swanee’ was the bestselling record and Gustav Holst composed

The Planets. The Beatles continue to occupy a position unique in popular

culture. They have entered people’s minds in a way that did not occur

before, and has not occurred since. Their influence extended way beyond

the realm of music to fashion, politics, class, religion and ethics. Countless

books have doggedly catalogued the minutiae of The Beatles. If you want

to know the make of George Harrison’s first car you will always be able to

find the answer (a second hand, two-door, blue Ford Anglia 105E Deluxe,

purchased from Brian Epstein’s friend Terry Doran, who worked at a

dealership in Warrington). Before she met John Lennon, who was the only

Beatle Yoko Ono could name, and why? Ringo. Because ‘ringo’ means

‘apple’ in Japanese. All very interesting, but there is, as yet, no book about

The Beatles that combines the intriguing minutiae of their day-to-day lives

with broader questions about their effect – complicated and fascinating –

on the world around them, their contemporaries, and generations to come.

Photographer’s historic

collection now online

IMAGES OF the early

1900s taken from a

collection of fragile

photographic glass plates

are now in focus on

the Christchurch City

Libraries’ digital heritage

site, Canterbury Stories.

More than 700 images

of the city from the

1000-strong collection

are online, with the rest

Cleansed and cured?

Many common health

problems can all be easily

solved with one simple

approach according

to a leading New

Zealand Medical

Herbalist Brett

Elliott. Brett found in

his clinical practice

that most of his clients

have similar common

health complaints and

that it all could be traced

back to digestive disorders. Did you know

up to 50% of the population suffer from

common health conditions like; chronic

constipation, acid reflux, bloating, gas,

ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, crohn’s

disease, coeliac disease, haemorrhoids,

gallstones, cancer, diabetes, high blood

pressure, abdominal weight gain, skin

complaints and many more, these can all

come back to a poor digestive system.

Brett wanted to find a simple solution

everyone could use to support their

bodies natural healing without the side

effects of pharmaceutical medications that

often only ease or cover the symptoms

without healing as well as often having

many side effects. Brett knew everything

in the body depends on the digestive

system working properly and so went

about developing “The Ultimate Herbal

Detox Body Cleanse Program” a simple

to use two week program. It not only

supports the whole digestive system but

also helps cleanse the entire body of toxins

and parasites. The program contains four

different all herb formulas all in capsule

form that need to be taken twice daily.

These capsules can be blended into a

smoothie if you prefer. Colon-aid

is designed to support a healthy

bowel movement, increases the

secretion of gastric juices and

bile and promote appetite and

digestion. Digez-aid soothes

and stimulates healthy digestion

and absorption of vital nutrients.

Sym-lax is a bulking fibre to

cleanse and heal the intestines and

bowels. It also makes you feel less

hungry. Liva-food is the final nutrient

rich formula to support a healthy liver

function. It supports detoxing the body of

toxins and heavy metals.

The program supports the bodies’

organs to do their job. The formulas are

New Zealand made and contain a total

of 24 high potency herbs making it quite

possibly the most comprehensive “do

it yourself ” herbal detox body cleanse

program in the world. Brett has refined

the formula over 20 years and has now

sold over 100, 000 kits world-wide. He

regularly receives incredible feedback

from users with many re-doing the

program once or twice yearly.

deteriorates before their eyes.

Whatever your needs are, you will

sizes and can need a longer length while

still needing a smaller suit. These can be

custom made in suits and rash sets.

Public Notice

Would you like an opportunity to

help people in your community?

Care Solutions is currently setting up a new Supervised

Contact service in the Christchurch area and we are

looking for six contact supervisors. We are a community

based, child focused agency. Visits are for two hours and

venues may vary. This is an opportunity to be part of an

exciting new team.

We are looking for a diverse group of supervisors both

male and female. The role provides for a non-day to

day (visiting) parent to have supervised visits with

their children, ensuring that children are safe, while

supporting and providing an opportunity to rebuild the

parent/child relationship.

The role includes supervising the contact (usually

two hours), keeping the child/children safe, following

any safety plan that may be in place, and writing an

observational report after the contact. Three hours is

paid to allow time for separate handovers between

the parents, the contact itself, and writing the report.

Mileage is paid from home to the contact. Note that

most contacts take place during the weekend or after

school hours.

Training and ongoing support will be

given. A Police vetting will be required

and you will need a full drivers licence.

If you are interested please e-mail
