What We Do 

Koru Care Southland fundraises every penny to provide these children with: 

  • Airfares
  • Accommodation
  • Entry to all the attractions
  • Meals
  • Medical care and 24-hour caregivers

You only need to see the smiles on their faces to appreciate what a difference this trip can make to these children's outlook and wellbeing!

Koru Care is a registered Charitable Trust reliant upon monetary donations from community organisations, the public and by regular donations from the staff of Air New Zealand. The committee also organises numerous fundraising activities throughout the year.

Koru Care Southland Charitable Trust helps children from Southland, in the South Island of New Zealand.

About Koru Care Southland

Koru Care Southland is proud to bring a little bit of joy into the lives of children with terminal illnesses or permanent disabilities. Koru Care Southland was established in 1993 and has taken hundreds of children on a holiday of a lifetime since then.

Countless hours of organising and fundraising are put into each trip, of which there are two to the Gold Coast each year, and one to the United States. Koru Care Southland wouldn't exist without the many hardworking volunteers behind the scenes, as well as the generous businesses and individuals in our community.
