Your impact: Helping children across Aotearoa New Zealand 

Your support helps transform the lives of sick and injured children in Aotearoa New Zealand. Last year, you helped our medical teams reach the next level, to go above and beyond, to do the extra training, get the extra piece of equipment, or fund the breakthrough research that might otherwise stall or never begin, were it not for your support.
