Welcome to KWANZ

kwa1KWANZ provides help, encouragement, and information for children with Arthritis, and those with associated conditions, also their families/whanau and professional support agencies, involved in their care. We will offer practical support to maximise choices, and raise awareness of childhood Arthritis in Aotearoa/New Zealand.

Brand New!

Just launched schools education video.  KWANZ have created this film following a cry of help from parents to assist them in educating teachers in what it’s like for a child to have arthritis.  Volunteers are available to join parents in approaching school teams via a Staff meeting to show this film and discuss how a specific family can be supported in the school environment.  Please contact us if we can help you in this way.  We will also be using this film to help raise awareness in our communities that ‘Even kids get Arthritis’.  Click HERE to view the film.
