Please help me get back to NZ to bury my Father

Talofa lava 

It is with immense sadness that I share
with you the passing of my Father Rapi
Tofa who was peacefully promoted to
Glory on Saturday 27th of June 2020 at 3pm. 

As you know we recently moved to 
the Gold Coast Australia for our son.
Being so far away I am devastated that
due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, the process to get home is lengthy and costly. 

Unfortunately I would have to take 5 weeks leave without pay. Therefore I need to find funds to cover the following expenses. Return airfares, living costs and quarantine fees on return. 

I humbly ask for your financial support 
whether it be big or small just to assist
me in going home to lay my Dad to rest
