A gift to Piki te Ora is a gift to ensure vulnerable families in the future don’t have to choose between food and the doctor

Linwood, Christchurch

Piki te Ora is a Very Low-Cost Access Medical Centre delivering primary care to whānau in the east of Christchurch. 50% of Piki te Ora’s patients are of Māori and/or Pacific Island descent. Refugees and other low decile groups also benefit from the reduced consult fees offered and the staff’s ongoing efforts to reduce the barriers to them receiving the care they need.

We are seeking to raise the money required to purchase our facility in Linwood Avenue. This will free up the financial resource to grow our capacity and services at a time where increasing numbers of families are struggling to afford healthcare.

Join us in opening our doors to more vulnerable whanau and play a part in ensuring that in the years to come, vulnerable families and children can get the affordable healthcare that they need to thrive. A gift to Piki te Ora now, is a gift to ensure vulnerable families in the future don’t have to choose between food and the doctor.

Piki te Ora is a Very Low-Cost Access Medical Centre delivering primary care to whānau in the east of Christchurch; 63% of our patients are Māori or Pasifika or come from culturally and linguistically diverse communities. These high deprivation groups benefit from the reduced consult fees offered at Piki and our staff’s ongoing efforts to reduce barriers for them receiving the care they need. Vulnerable and sick people often decide to ‘tough it out,’ which leads to more complicated outcomes and delayed diagnosis and care.

We are seeking to raise the money required to purchase our facility in Linwood Avenue; we have already applied for funding (outcomes are pending) and will apply to CCC for a loan. If we can purchase our premises, this will free up the money we currently pay for rent to grow our capacity and services at a time where increasing numbers of families are struggling to afford healthcare.

Join us in opening our doors to more vulnerable whanau o enable to receive the affordable healthcare they need to thrive. A gift to Piki te Ora now, is a gift to ensure vulnerable families in the future don’t have to choose between food and healthcare.
