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. We have to fundraise for all the services we provide.

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

We welcome Rob Lutter as the new CEO. Rob’s appointment represents another milestone on our journey in supporting Heart Kids through life. He is a heart dad and has been involved with our organisation for years and as a Board member since 2005. His outstanding knowledge and significant experience has seen him excel in the various commercial, not-for-profit and voluntary roles he has held. Welcome to the team!


Join us and help support Kiwi heart kids as you take on your own Cycle Challenge – it’s easy and you’ll be making a huge difference as you ride.

It’s Heart Kids NZ’s annual national effort to raise awareness and funds for the 12 babies born every week with a heart defect in NZ.
