Koru Care NZ supported by community
Koru Care NZ has been listening closely to the news that Mike Pero offered to charter a plane to take family members and others to Antarctica as part of the 30th commemoration of the Erebus disaster.
What has been of interest is the comment that any profits from the flight would be donated to “Air New Zealand’s charity Koru Care”.
We would welcome any support from Mr Pero for the work we do in helping young people suffering from ongoing medical conditions and terminal illness, but, do need to clarify that we are not Air New Zealand’s charity.
Koru Care NZ was formed over 25 years ago by staff from Air New Zealand who wanted to help children in the community. This support still continues today with staff donating their time to help at fundraising events or as caregivers on our dream holidays.
Our main support is from the wider community with many members of the public making donations when Koru Care NZ holds their annual fundraising activities.
If you would like to know more about Koru Care New Zealand or help us children’s dreams come true please visit www.korucare.co.nz.
