Supporting families of children with special needs, education & breastfeeding research

Help for families


We are providing financial support for families with children who have special needs.


We are pledging financial assistance to midwifery students, specifically those looking to practice in small or rural townships.


We are helping to fund ongoing breastfeeding research in order to provide mothers with more accessible information to help them make informed decisions on their breastfeeding journeys.  

We are helping families in need

There are over 95,000 children in New Zealand living with special needs (Statistics New Zealand, 2013), and this number continues to grow as more children are welcomed into the world. The Haakaa Foundation aims to provide financial aid for programmes and events that support children with special needs and their families. Living with special needs incurs many unexpected or extra costs that can burden families and put a strain on their daily lives. The Haakaa Foundation’s goal is to help break down as many of those financial costs and obstacles as possible to provide children with special needs the same opportunities as others and take the stress away from their families. Through pledging financial support, we aim to broaden the scope of opportunity for these families and their children, improve their quality of life and encourage them to embrace bright futures within NZ society.
