How we’ve made a difference to Kiwi families in the last year
Help Andrew feel safe at home today
Sadly, New Zealand has a terrible record of child abuse and family violence. On average, one child is killed every five weeks and a young child is hospitalised every second day as a result of abuse or neglect.
Your donation will help children cope with and recover from the effects of domestic violence. You’ll be funding Family Works services that restore children’s lives. A regular gift of $30 each month will help pay for much-needed social services, such as counselling, play therapy, parenting programmes, social workers and emergency food parcels.
Please help us by becoming a Family Works Guardian Angel … because every child deserves to feel safe in their own home.
