Jeanette and eldest child Charlie reunite in person for the first time in 9 months

Robert and Jeanette 24/11/2020

Edit: a previous version of this article referred to Charlie by 'her' and as Jeanette's daughter. As Charlie's preferred pronouns are now they/him, we've updated this article to reflect Charlie's more accurate identity.

Nine months ago, Jeanette's eldest child Charlie embarked on an incredible adventure to Kure Atoll.

For the 9 months, Charlie's only contact with anyone outside of Kure was via satellite emails that were sent weekly. 

After two weeks in compulsury quarrantine on their arrival back to New Zealand, Charlie was finally allowed to give his mum a big hug. 

Watch Charlie's first interview post-Kure above.
