The organisation was established in Invercargill, New Zealand and is not an off-shoot of any overseas charity, but has a very strong connection with New Zealand. All trustees are from New Zealand and the Trust is managed and controlled in New Zealand. We have partnerships with other organisations, but are not controlled by them. We are funded by supporters and fundraising which also includes our Op shops and Orphans Aid online.
Here is a list of all the details changed by the charity, for example adding or removing officers, amending rules, changing balance dates or updating address details.
