NZFMC Insight Building workshop for Seniors

30 January 2016

The Multicultural New Zealand is organising the Insight Building Workshop for Seniors on 11 March 2017 at Filipino Community Centre, 90 Cuba Street, Petone and hosted by the NZFMC Seniors Council.

With the increase in growth rate of the migrant communities in NZ, there is a higher probability for the New Zealand’s ageing migrant population becoming much noticeable in the future.

Keeping them active also improves their level of independency, which in turn provides them a healthy physical and mental life. Read more here.
