Keep reading for more information on our amazing charity, NZ Heart Kids.
Heart Kids is a nationwide charity that supports children born with heart defects or they have an acquired heart disease as a child through illnesses such as Kawasaki Disease. A congenital heart defect is the most common birth defect with around 12 babies being born every week with one or more defects.
This can mean months spent at the National Childrens Hospital in Auckland – no matter where a family may live in the country. NZ Heart Kids have a network of professional Family Support staff based in the hospital in Auckland and in local communities that provide specialist support to these families and then as a heart child grows to them directly.
For most families once they have a heart child their life will have to change dramatically and permanently to fit the needs of their child. There will be repeated stays in hospital, missed family events and school, siblings often feel neglected and there can be a financial strain also if only one parent can work. Heart Kids make a really positive difference in these families lives through emotional and practical support, introducing parents to a supportive community, events and activities such as Camp Bravehearts, and helping them make the most of their new normal.
