Life can be tough for many in our community and when someone finds themselves in hospital, this is often a crisis point. Every day, our teams in the hospital and the community bring us stories of patients not able to afford petrol to get to appointments or visit patients, new parents unable to afford car capsules to take baby home, Mums admitted to ER with no way of getting food to their children.

Enhancing Kidz First Healing Spaces
When Kidz First constructed nine specialized positive and negative pressure rooms for patients in isolation or burns, our donors equipped them with state-of-the-art clinical and communication devices, enhancing the quality of care provided to our littlest patients.
Middlemore is home to New Zealand's National Burn Centre, having dedicated healing spaces like these contributes to providing essential care to young burn patients and improving their overall well-being. In New Zealand, approximately 475 children under the age of 15 are admitted to hospitals each year due to burns or scalds, with 80% of these cases involving children five years old or younger.
