Support a child

12 years ago Julie Chapman began helping New Zealand children after hearing constant media reports of so many going without the basics.

Today, with the support of other New Zealanders, KidsCan are able to provide over 168,000 Kiwi kids with access to food, clothing and healthcare items in partnership with 700 schools across the country.

There are 2,652 kids waiting for our help as schools start heading back for the school year. For just $15 a month, you can make a real difference for one of these children.
