The Guardian Angels Trust is a small charitable trust set up in 2004 specifically to support the needs of terminally ill children and their families. The Trust was set up in response to the growing awareness that poverty does exist within New Zealand and that families who have a dying child are often thrust into a level of poverty as they struggle to do the hardest job that any parent will ever have to do.
The Guardian Angels Trust was set up to help minimise some of the financial stressors so that families can focus on supporting their terminally ill child to live as fully as possible for as long as possible. To that extent a commitment was made by the Trustees to raise money that would be given directly to families through practical means such as the provision of supermarket vouchers, help with household bills and incidentals that would directly benefit the wellbeing of the child and family and then help towards funeral costs as families begin acute bereavement.
I believe it is to Guardian Angels that I need to say A Huge Thank you from our family to your organisation for the generous gift of a Ham, other food items and gifts for our kids this Christmas. We have had a rough last 4 months and was so nice to get some Christmas spirit come our way.
We would like to thank you very much for all of the support Guardian Angels has given us & other families. The support you have given us has assisted in ensuring our little angel had the best journey possible.
