Heart Kids NZ
Heart Kids NZ is a national organisation that provides support services to the 12 babies born with a heart defect every week in New Zealand, and those who acquire a heart condition from childhood illnesses.
In fact, our organisation has been supporting heart kids and their families since 1984. Our services are provided free-of-charge to heart kids, teens and adults through our network of 12 affiliated branches across the country and we provide life-long support.
Our support services come in the form of information, education, training, family support, specialised equipment, camps, family matching, social affiliation and financial assistance. Our local branches organise family days, coffee mornings and information evenings to connect families, let them share ideas and experiences, off-load problems or just have some fun together. With appropriate and timely support, heart kids, teens and adults can successfully cope with the challenges of their heart condition and lead a fulfilling life.
As a charity, we have to fundraise for all the services we provide. We are reliant on the generous donations from individuals, businesses, philanthropic organisations and the local community to make our work possible.
