Providing support and respite for First Responders and New Zealand Defence Force personnel.Nationwide
Te Kiwi Māia - The Courageous Kiwi Charitable Trust.
We are a charity which provides rehabilitation, recovery and respite to our people, who - as a result of their role in safeguarding and caring for New Zealanders - have physical or psychological injuries. We enable our people and their families to continue healthy, positive lives.
Our people will have have access to the support to succeed in their physical and mental wellness.
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.

We filmed Rebekah from St John and Barry from Fire and Emergency NZ back in June 2020 along with Josh (St John) and Cherie (NZ Army). We asked them all types of questions and this one was a tough one.
We are very grateful to them for opening up to us and being so honest. Our first responders do so much to keep us safe and this goes to show they never forget.
Thank you to all our first responders and NZDF personal for the job you do everyday!
