We remember with great sadness and grieve for those who have lost their lives or are fighting for their lives after the tragic eruption on Whakaari/White Island on Monday 9 December 2019. We send our condolences to their families and friends as they struggle to come to terms with this tragedy. But we give thanks and acknowledge the tremendous effort demonstrated by those on the “front line” who against all odds worked so valiantly to save so many. May they take comfort knowing they did all that was possible and give strength to the medical teams around the country who are desperately trying to save the injured victims of this terribly tragic event.
