It takes a
to make our
health services
even better

Māia Health Foundation is the official charity of Health NZ (Canterbury).

We've helped to fund a large future-proofed rooftop helipad for Christchurch Hospital Hagley, enhancements for the new children’s facilities, improvements at Burwood Spinal Unit, and other projects that without community fundraising may simply not have happened.


Thanks for making a difference

The generosity of people like you makes a real difference for those needing our health services.

Healthcare workers in Canterbury are committed to providing patients with the best treatment and care during a time when they are at their most vulnerable. Making a donation or leaving a bequest is one way that you can say 'thanks'. 

Your gift helps us to fund projects that make a real difference for health services right here in Canterbury.
