New Zealanders urged to help create a better world for all Kiwi kids

KidsCan hopes New Zealanders will use Universal Children’s Day to pause and put themselves in the small shoes of Kiwi kids living in hardship. 

“It’s crucial we do, because the children of today will determine the future of this country and we will be dependent on them for the shape of what our future looks like. Failing to help them create better lives, and failing to fight for their dignity will wind up hurting all of us,” says KidsCan CEO and Founder, Julie Chapman.
