Continuing preservation of NZ's military history in tough times

From Afternoons, 1:15 pm on 16 April 2024

Many New Zealanders are feeling the squeeze as we face a recession, and of course this trickles down and impacts the work of charity organisations.

One of those is the New Zealand Remembrance Army, a volunteer group who install and restore the graves of our military service people.

They formed in 2018 and have so far restored 180,000 graves across 250 cemeteries.

NZRA managing director Simon Strombom speaks to Jesse.
