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.

Have a Cuppa for Heart Kids

Having a Cuppa for Heart Kids is an awesome way to show off your cooking skills, spend time with your friends and help support children born with heart defects at the same time!

You can host your Cuppa wherever you like, and however you like! Have a Sunday morning brunch, a winter warmer soup lunch at work or a pot luck dinner with your friends and family.
