We run wellness retreats and workshops for people affected by cancer and are wanting to raise money to subsidise participant fees.

Cancer Programmes Health Education

In the knowledge that cancer is often a devastating life event, the Aratika Cancer Trust strives to empower people affected through education, enabling them to develop the skills and confidence to regain control, and support them on their healing journey.

Since 2011 we have been running evidence-based integrative medicine programmes. They are facilitated by professionals, such as cancer nurses, GP's, health professionals and counsellors all whom have many years experience. We cover a range of topics such as Mindfulness Mediation, Organic gardening, Wholefood Nutrition and our flag-ship programmes is our 8 day Cancer Wellness Retreat coming up in April 2016.

Why are we asking for donations????

Because often people affected by cancer are unable to work due to treatments schedules and feeling unwell. This means price becomes a barrier to attending programmes that would really make a huge difference to their day to day lives.

So by making a donation you can help us subsidise our programme fees so anyone with cancer can attend.

The feedback we receive from participants is what keeps us going.

"I believe the programme was priceless in terms of the knowledge gained."

"It was beyond my expectations. I have found this experience life changing and wouldn't hesitate recommending it."

"The facilitators were outstanding, clearly very wise bringing significant knowledge to this course."

"The facilitators were empathetic, genuine and non-judgemental, they also brought laughter and lots of smiles."

We are a small Charitable Trust wanting to have a big impact on improving the lives of those affected by cancer in NZ.

So please, help us support more people to attend to their own 'Wellness' by allowing them to attend our 'Wellness' programmes. Your support is appreciated.
