"Thank you so very much for the [sic] amazing donation and a following parcel last week. We have been able to support mamas on NICU including a mum who was having chemotherapy. We gave every mum on NICU a ladybug set for world expressing day.  They were so well received by our mums. One of our colleagues visits Samoa regularly and does what she can to support her community so we gave her a few of these to take with her next time she goes. We are going to do a few weeks of a weekly draw where a mum can put her name in a box for a chance to win one, hopefully this will add a bit of excitement to the long days and weeks our families spend on NICU. We have also put some aside for our emergency kits. Your kindness and support of our expressing mothers is very much appreciated."

"With my maternity leave payments ending we are right on money, having access to these amazing products through pregnancy help has given us the opportunity to put our money towards other things as I now don't need to buy a Haakaa pump, the storage bag will be amazing as I am an exclusive pumper and it's hard to rely on store bought single use bags, I am now confident in never losing milk to a hole in a bag etc, thankyou so so much."

"It was such a blessing to receive a Haakaa pack - I know it will be so useful once my baby arrives, and it's a huge stress reducer knowing that I don't have to go out and buy something similar! Thank you so so much 💗."

"Very helpful for my pumping journey as I have found my Haakaa pump very helpful from the start and I still continue to use it to this day."

"Amazing product. So helpful for me and something I wouldn't be able to afford to purchase myself."

"Generous and extremely useful."

"I'm due in 23 days and Haakaa products were on the list of things I would love to have. I'm so incredibly happy to receive the pack, which will be so much help on my first breastfeeding journey. So appreciative. Can't wait to share my journey with the products with those I know."

"Yes! I was lucky enough to grab a "On-The-Go" pack! The Ladybug catchers are wonderful! I'm saving so much precious milk! I love being able to catch the let down and utilize it for iceblocks for my son! Thank you so much!"

"Haakaa is known to have utmost quality with all their products. Very reliable and trustworthy!"

"I received a stash n go kit and am already using to collect milk. Thank you."

"I think it was amazingly generous providing Dunedin mums the opportunity to receive such a lovely, useful gift and something that can support their breastfeeding journey. I know I am so grateful of my kit and cannot wait to use it. Thank you again so much!"

"We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Haakaa for their generous donation of over $6000 worth of breast pumps and breastfeeding packs. This enables us to provide much-needed support to mothers in need. One grateful caseworker shared their experience, stating, 'We had a breast pump donated by Tassie Mums and provided it to a mum, and she let us know that it meant the difference between being able to breastfeed her baby or not."

"A massive thank-you to Haakaa for their very generous donation of 100 of their Save and Stash Pack products for us to gift to our precious breast milk donors. Mothers Milk Bank Charity provides a service where we collect donor breast milk from screened donors, test and pasteurize the donor breast milk and distribute it to Prem babies but also Term babies where the mum is unable to breastfeed due to medical reasons, illness, surrogacy or no milk supply.Our work would not be possible without our donors who take their hard pump stash and donate it for these babies. It is so wonderful to have a brand like Haakaa supporting our work and allowing us to give a token of thanks to these wonderful mummies. The products are amazing and our donors have been so thrilled with the quality and ease of use. Again a massive thank-you, Haakaa Team."

“We were blown away by the generosity from the Haakaa team, We received a huge donation of essential breast pump packs that will enable us to support so many mothers around Auckland who do not have access to a lot of basic needs. We want to say a massive thank you for your support.”

"A massive thank you to Haakaa for providing a donation of flow cups for our students. They provided both the 18ml (small) and 24ml (large) flow cups which has been a huge success with the girls providing them with the independence and confidence when on their monthly. These products are reusable making it cost effective and versatile. The flow cups come with a storage container and bag, meaning students can store away without worry. They also come with instructions and handling which is super easy to read and easy to use for students of all ages here at Rotorua Girls High School.

Statements from a few students:

“Very easy to use and super comfortable.”
“You don’t know it’s there.”
“I haven’t noted any leakage, I don’t think I will be going back to other sanitary items.”

Thank you Haakaa."

"Mums4Mums is incredibly grateful for the acknowledgement of the important and crucial mahi we are providing our mums in our community and the thoughtful support from Haakaa. Our Founder, CJ Dafoe was told there was a delivery at the office and so swung by to discover 7 boxes of product donated for our mums. She was over the top excited and thankful for the support. This donation will be such a blessing to many of our mums who are breastfeeding and may not have had the financial means to purchase the amazing products that Haakaa distributes. Often in this new start of motherhood a new mum will be overwhelmed with the changes to her body from the birth experience, managing fluctuating hormones, adjusting to a new baby and the routines and needs of that precious baby. All of this can be quite overwhelming as she finds her footing as a new mum. When our team of volunteers show up with a care package or a special item just for her it will often make her day as she feels that she is not invisible, that she is valued and cared for and someone has cared enough about her to bring her an unexpected gift. We are not only generous of our time with our mums but generous in supporting them through our collaborative partners in providing food, clothing, furniture items and specialty products that they need. All of us together are making a huge difference and we are delighted to have Haakaa joining our village to support new mums and babies for best possible outcomes. Thank you so much.”

“The scholarships provided by the Haakaa Foundation for our third-year Pacific Island and Māori midwifery students are immensely valuable, enabling the talented young practitioners to focus on their studies and important practical work in the communities they serve. As such, they are well on their way to becoming successful midwives and will make significant contributions to Māori and Pacific Island whānau for years to come”

"To the Haakaa team, thank you so much for your kind support over the last few years. Covid has made life difficult for many but even more so for these children who live with life threatening illness, physical or intellectual impairment, domestic violence, or in underprivileged circumstances. Without businesses like Haakaa, we wouldn’t be able to provide this one day of happiness for over 2,000 children in Auckland who just haven’t had the best start to their life.
On behalf of the special Children's Christmas Party, thank you for your ongoing support and for putting smiles of these deserving children's faces."

“Would just like to first thank you for your generosity in providing donations e.g., hand sanitizer and feeding toys for our baby love baskets we provide for vulnerable families in the community and across New Zealand, who are expecting or have toddlers. Some parents have never known your company till we added these in their baby boxes, to provide families good quality baby essentials and products is such a joy to see. We would love to acknowledge the impact of your generosity and the seeds you have sown in our organisation is never ignored or forgotten lightly, we will be forever grateful for this and have added you to our website as some very generous friends we like to call you for helping and sowing the seed to the need."
