Every week, 12 babies are born with a heart defect in New Zealand. Whilst there are surgical procedures that can improve the heart's function, there is no cure for a Congenital Heart Disease (CHD).

Heart Kids NZ is the only charity that supports Kiwi children and families affected by CHD, right through their life.

Heart Kids NZ receives no government funding and has to fundraise for all its services.

If you need more information or just someone to talk to, please call us on free phone 0800 543 943.
