The Osteopathic Children's Foundation Centre for Children

  • What a year!

      31 March 2020

    Sadly we are having to postpone or services at present due to the Global Covid19 crisis and New Zealands Alert Level 4 status.

    We will be opening as soon as is safe and hope to help as many children as possible become healthier and function better.

    We very grateful for the funding we have had to date. It has meant that we have been able to treat almost 600 children in our monthly clinic, at Rainbow Place (Hospice Waikato) and at the hospital.

    Please help us to be able to see that more children get the better health they deserve.

    Thank you everyone for your donations over the last few months. We really are greatly appreciative. We just wanted to let you know that we have run clinics from Te Arohou village in Hamilton in October, November and December with 20 to 25 osteopaths fully booked with patients from the community. The project is running beautifully and your donations are being put to great use. On behalf of our trust board and everyone involved we would like to wish you and your families a wonderful and safe Christmas.

    Thanks again and all the best

    Oliver, Helen, Jill, Gavin, Rob and rest of the OCF team
