KidsCan is a Kiwi charity offering practical hands-on assistance to help thousands of disadvantaged children in 448 low-decile schools across the country.
Meridian is proud to help KidsCan make a tangible difference. Meridian’s support enabled schools to come off the waiting list to receive assistance, but we still have a long way to go.
In 2013, KidsCan provided more than 30,000 meals a week for hungry kids, 16,307 raincoats, 10,446 pairs of shoes and 20,892 pairs of socks to underprivileged Kiwi kids. Their ‘Health for Kids’ programme will be expanded in 2014 to include a funding trial for doctor’s prescriptions as well as continuing to provide nit treatments, basic health and hygiene items to children living without the basics.
