Barnardos Christmas Appeal

Christmas is a fun and festive time for most of us.


But for the thousands of New Zealand children affected by abuse, neglect and poverty it can be a time of stress, unhappiness and fear. Many of these children won’t have a Christmas meal to enjoy or a gift to open. They could also be the victims of violence and abuse.

But you can help.

Please support the Barnardos NZ Christmas Appeal and help ensure that a vulnerable child is safe and happy this Christmas. Money raised will help the children and families we work with over the holiday period, covering costs such as:

- Services to help keep children happy and safe at Christmas and beyond

- Christmas gifts for children at risk

- Food parcels for Christmas day

- A first time trip to the beach

If you'd also like to donate a gift, we'll make sure it will bring some joy to a vulnerable child at Christmas. Just give us a call on 0800 BARNARDOS to find a drop-off point near you. Thanks.

“Christmas for a child that has been removed from his family is a hard time, mostly they have come from a family of abuse and poverty and while that is all they have known they are still the family for this young child. Some children just want a permanent family for Christmas and committed foster parents are so hard to find.” Barnardos Social Worker.
