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.

Merry Christmas  20 December 2020

Posted by: Te Kiwi Māia

Dear Friends and Supporters,

As we all start to wind down for Christmas, we just want to take a moment to say a huge thank you for your support over the past year. Whether you brought a t-shirt, shared our Facebook page, donated to us, or talked about our cause to friends and family, we are so incredibly grateful for your support.

Even though it has been a challenging year, we were excited to achieve a big milestone by holding our first "Wellness Workshop" with our organisations’ wellness experts. We have some big plans for 2021 and will make sure we keep you updated.

We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and take some time to rest, recharge and enjoy our amazing kiwi summer.

A very special thank you to those who are working through the holiday period, doing an incredible job to look after us and protect us - we appreciate you all! The below quote really resonates with us, we understand the sacrifices you make and the challenges you face at this time of year.

"This is going to be a tough week for first responders. This week we will respond to car wrecks filled with bodies and Christmas gifts, we will respond to cardiac arrests during family dinners, we will respond to suicides for the people where this isn't the happiest time of year. We will respond to drug overdoses, murders and sexual assaults......and when our shift is over we'll return to our families, act like none of it happened and try to enjoy the holiday season. Let's stick together this week everyone and be safe. " - DanSun
