Since Cure Kids was established by Rotary in 1971 as the Child Health Research Foundation, we have helped save and improve the lives of thousands of kids both here in New Zealand and around the world.
We have invested almost $40 million in research which has helped shape and change the way children who live with serious diseases and health conditions are diagnosed and treated.
The breadth of the work we support is wide; just some of the projects we have funded,or are currently funding, include childhood cancers, inherited heart conditions, cystic fibrosis, sudden unexpected death in infants (SUDI), stillbirth, burns, and child and adolescent mental health, among many others.
Cure Kids are the largest funder of child health research outside the government, and we are supporting the best science possible to make a difference to the health and well-being of children in New Zealand.
Support from every day New Zealanders makes this important work possible, and every year we are humbled by the generosity of Kiwis up and down the country who dig deep and donate to Cure Kids.
We are proud to be a fundamental part of improving and saving the lives of New Zealand children and, with your support, we will continue to give today’s and tomorrow’s children the best chance of enjoying a healthy childhood.
