12 little kiwi children are born every week with broken hearts.
Your kind donation will help transform the lives of these children and their families. On their behalf, thank you!
We have trained family support staff that support families while they face the challenges of living with a child with a heart defect.
Will give a heart parent the gift of a week's worth of meals as they sit by their child's bedside in hospital.
Will provide food and travel support for an out-of-town family for a week whilst their child is in Starship.
We provide 20 specialist machines a year to kids that need to regularly monitor their blood, enabling parents to do at-home checks instead of multiple hospital visits.
We provide emergency travel packs containing food, petrol vouchers, toiletries and other essentials to Heart Kid families at Starship hospital.
We assist with funding for research into congenital heart defects and treatments.
Heart Kids supports thousands of children and families across New Zealand by providing them with practical, emotional and psychosocial services – be it specialist equipment, information, leadership development for heart youth and adults, a camping experience, an opportunity to connect with other families, a hot meal for hospital-bound families, or just a shoulder to cry on. Your kind donations will help us continue providing heart children and families free access to our services.
We’re not funded by the Government and we simply can't do this without your help.
Please know that your donation today makes such a difference to Heart Kids' ability to support heart kids and families throughout life.
