Whangarei Children’s Ward Refurbishment – Update

Posted on: 28/02/22

We have now raised $160,148 towards our goal of $561,019 for the Whangārei Children’s Ward Refurbishment by the end of 2023. Donations have been received from several major donors including recent grants from the Oxford Sports Trust and the Lindsay Foundation.  Thank you!

Judith Hapi, Whangārei Children’s Ward Manager, is thankful for the recent support: “We are so grateful for the generosity shown by donors, Trusts, and Foundations towards the Whangārei Children’s Ward Refurbishment. The donations have enabled us to purchase nearly all of the medical equipment on our wish list. Recent grants from the Lindsay Foundation and Oxford Sports Trust will enable us to purchase furniture for the new ward and play equipment for children in our hospital.”

“We are still looking for funding support for upgraded furniture and whiteware, interactive wall designs, graphite wall wraps, treatment room monitors, TVs for patient rooms, and a range of Te Reo Māori resources.”
