Fundraising through relaxation

For the third consecutive year, the Kiwanis Club of Tiare Paita in New Caledonia — a French island in the New Zealand-South Pacific District — offered a “wellness” day to raise funds for future service.

The president of the club, Ophelia Dermel, is a physiotherapist who opens her practice in Noumea to members of the club who conduct well-being and energy care sessions. Daniel does energetic body treatments. Julien offers sessions of access consciousness bars. Alain practices reiki. Orphélia relaxes with muscle massages.  

Meanwhile, other members manage the reception, appointments and the waiting area — all while evoking Kiwanis “serving the children of the world.”

At the end of the day, the club takes a well-deserved break over a cold drink — and counts the funds raised. This year, more than US$1,000 for the benefit of the children of the world.
