Since 1971, Cure Kids have supported medical breakthroughs that improve the health of our kids, and changed the way health conditions are diagnosed and treated.
In fact, the pioneering research of Cure Kids has probably been part of your life. Their work has been internationally adopted as best practice in a number of areas including cystic fibrosis at birth, maternal best practices, like sleeping on your side in pregnancy, and the prevention of sudden unexpected death in infancy.
Cure Kids funds child health research across New Zealand to help improve, extend and save the lives of Kiwi kids living with serious illness and conditions. To name just a few, this includes childhood cancers, inherited heart conditions, epilepsy, infectious diseases, cystic fibrosis, sudden unexpected death in infants (SUDI), stillbirth, burns as well as child and adolescent mental health.
As the largest funder of child health research outside the New Zealand Government, their work is made possible through the generosity of individuals, businesses and community groups—like Great Full.
Your contribution to the Jams collection will contribute to the ground-breaking research that helps children in both Aotearoa and internationally.
