All Charities Children Health Kindness From Home
Twelve kiwi babies are born each week with broken hearts.
That’s 600 families every year who have a heart child enter their lives.
A childhood heart condition is the most common birth defect!
Heart Kids’ walks alongside these families every step of the way. We provide lifelong support to all those facing the challenges that come with having a heart child.
We offer practical and emotional support both at home and in hospital – equipment, resources and opportunities to connect with other heart families.
We organise camps, family days, coffee groups, and practical workshops.
You can help us do this!
Here's the difference your donation could make:
- $20 could provide a petrol voucher to help a family travel to and from the hospital to support their heart child/sibling - keeping families together during times of extreme stress.
- $50 provides 5 x meals for a mother or father while they support there heart child, while in Starship hospital, sometimes for months at a time with no other family close by.
- $100 helps a heart child receive proper medical assistance with the aid of a medic alert bracelet
