Te Kiwi Māia - The Courageous Kiwi Charitable Trust.

We are a charity which provides support and respite for first responders and New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) personnel, both current and former, who have physical or psychological injuries as a result of their service to Aotearoa and our communities.

This will be achieved through the provision of facilities, equipment, services or assistance for the rehabilitation, recovery and care of such individuals, as well as their immediate families, who are in need.

Our aim is to establish a homestead and working farm designed and equipped to foster physical, psychological and emotional rehabilitation and recovery; somewhere for those who have committed to our country, and who have been injured through their work, to recuperate and refresh. This will be achieved via the provision of a supportive and inclusive environment, professional assistance, access to a variety of services, and opportunities to participate in activities that promote mental wellness; such as pottery, cooking or yoga classes, building tuition, sports and fitness, or assisting on the farm.

Ultimately, Te Kiwi Māia’s goal is to support and assist those whose role has been to safeguard and care for all New Zealanders, so they can continue healthy, positive lives.

Te Kiwi Māia’s Charitable Trust number is CC56958. 

The bank account utilised for fundraising is a solicitor’s trust account (Garth Mathieson); this will be used until such time as a Te Kiwi Māia bank account can be opened.

Latest update

World In Union - Rebecca Nelson and The Band of the Welsh Guards  9 October 2019

We are very excited to announce the album 'Reverence' by Rebecca Nelson. All profits made from album sales are going to Te Kiwi Māia!

This track 'World In Union' features on the upcoming album, due to be released in November this year.

Able Musician Rebecca Nelson from Royal New Zealand Navy, SOL3 MIO star Moses Mackay and The Manukau New Zealand Police Choir (with some support from Fire and Emergency NZ) have teamed up to show their support for the mighty All Blacks as they attempt to win a third successive World Cup title, with this awesome rendition of World in Union!

Not only does this song show support for the All Blacks, but also to their fellow first responders and NZDF personnel.

To give credibility to the title “World in Union”, the band featuring on the track is courtesy of another rugby powerhouse nation, The Band of the Welsh Guards.

    For someone who has worked both as a first responder (St John) and in the NZDF, I know how important this is. All the best for the set-up and running of this amazing charity
