About the book:

Have you ever wondered what goes on beneath our feet? In this stunning lift-the-flap picture book, you and your little ones can explore Christchurch’s hidden city. Find out where our water comes from, where it goes when you flush the toilet and everything in between!

On your journey, you will discover the amazing work Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team (SCIRT) has done to repair and rebuild our city’s roads, bridges, pipes and retaining walls. As the organisation wraps up soon, this is a must-have memoir for any Cantabrian.

About us

A child’s medical battle is perhaps the biggest endurance test a family can ever face, both physically and emotionally. When a child is in hospital it is vital to their healing process that their family is close by. Our mission is simple, to improve the health and wellbeing of those children by providing free accommodation and support to their families while they are in hospital.

Our facilities were established to help children live happier, healthier lives. We support families of children up to and including the age of 18, and they are never charged for their stay, regardless of whether is it is for one night, or many months.

Having a child in hospital is stressful and while parents are focused on the medical needs of their children, our facilities aim to alleviate emotional, practical and financial stress for families. With the stressors of everyday life removed, families can simply concentrate on what matters most - their child,

No child should have to face their medical journey alone. We know families are stronger when they are close and our facilities help to keep them that way.

Use of funds

By supporting the reprint of Christchurch - Our Underground Story you are giving the gift of togetherness to hundreds of Kiwi families who stay at Ronald McDonald House South Island every year. You are directly supporting their facilities, which provide a ‘home away from home’ for families who must travel to Christchurch and Southland hospitals for their child’s medical treatment.
