Sandra King (Kiwi Mother Theresa)

Dear Reader

In my view, we have in our midst in New Zealand one of the most incredibly selfless, noble humanitarian persons our country can lay claim to, going completely unnoticed and unrecognised.

Sandra King has spent the best part of twenty seven years in China mothering and caring for 670 orphaned and mostly disabled babies and children. Undoubtedly many of these children would have died without Sandra’s steadfast enduring commitment, love, and dedication.

Sandra has been called by New Zealanders, Chinese and other people the Kiwi Mother Theresa, which is not stretching the truth when you appreciate what she has done.

Sandra did not have a support regime funding her, just her drive to care for the unwanted babies and the determination to care for their wellbeing.

Sandra started up, and has running in China today, three orphanages:

1. Home of heavenly Healing Aug 1995 – Aug 2000 Guangzhou, China.

A home for 30 children; 29 staff

2. House of Peace 2000 – 2003 Hernan province – Beijing A home for 24 babies less than 1 year of age. 16 Staff.

3. House of Grace 2005 – 2018 Yangchuan

Some international companies like Fonterra, and Proctor and Gamble have and some continue to support Sandra’s homes with food and other domestic products.

Sandra aged 72, has now been forced to return New Zealand due to many reasons. She is living in a humble workman’s hut at Maungatapere just out of Whangarei. She has no home of her own and has no funds to buy a home, so I and others are starting a fund raising to buy her the home she deserves.

In my view this humble but strong lady has done more for humanity, and sacrificed more than any other New Zealander I am aware of during my 68 years.

What Sandra has done for the New Zealand and Chinese relationship is outstanding and worthy of national and international recognition.

I would like to see the New Zealand government recognise the inter-China -New Zealand good-will Sandra has helped to create and reward her accordingly.

Sandra, like Rewi Alley, has helped to aid our relationship with China through her selfless efforts and I would like to see New Zealand recognise this for Sandra.

If You can make a contribution to a home for Sandra King that would be sincerely appreciated.

Thank You in advance for considering this and for Your support.
