Orana Approved Recommendations

At the height of COVID-19 in April, Orana aimed to find creative ways to support our clients to remain home safely by exploring the digital world to find fun, educational and entertaining activities.

Through our social media channels, we shared our ‘Orana Approved Recommendations’ with our community and followers, activities and events they could enjoy from the comfort of their home, during this challenging time.

Our recommendations were a mixture of newly created experiences that other businesses had created for the digital world and existing experiences.

Please have a read below of the Orana approved recommendations we shared on our social media channels for our followers:
