About Heart Kids New Zealand

Heart Kids New Zealand is the only charity that supports Kiwi kids and families affected by CHD, right through their life. http://www.heartkids.org.nz
Each week in New Zealand, 12 babies are born with a congenital heart defect. Some of these babies face the reality of life-saving open heart surgery within the first few days of life.

Other previously healthy children can find themselves living with a heart condition as a result of a childhood illness such as Rheumatic Fever.
For most heart kids, the battle is never over – normal life is peppered with check-ups, blood tests, echocardiograms, medical interventions and further open heart surgeries as they grow – and they will need lifelong support as there is no cure for a heart defect.

Heart Kids New Zealand walks alongside each of these heart kids and their families and shares in their battles, providing them with the practical, emotional and psycho-social support they need to cope with the challenges.

Heart Kids New Zealand is a national organisation and is not affiliated with the Heart Foundation. Without Government funding, we rely on voluntary donations and support to make our work possible.
