Meet Our Koru Care Kids

Koru Care New Zealand Christchurch kids

Dear koru care,

I am writing to you to say thank you for such a wonderful trip I hope you keep doing this for other children like me in the future. I had the best time of my life I had always wished of going to America and now I have thanks to you.

I liked disneyland the most because of all the characters and rides my favorite ride was probably the log flume because of the amount of water you get on you. I really appreciate the amount of time off work you take for kids like me all the late nights staying up to plan the trip all the stress getting all the carers ready. The amount of time and effort is amazing. I really can’t thank you guys enough. I made some new friends on the trip. It really made think of how minor my disability is compared to others. I am so thankful because without Air New Zealand staff and funds I would not have gone on this trip. The photo album was amazing it was the best ever I have never had a photo album that good. The pictures were so clear and laid out nicely.

I had the best time ever

Yours sincerely Joshua Rae
