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.


Hugo Charitable Trust is Kids With Arthritis NZ’s Elite Partner.  They have partnered with Kids With Arthritis NZ since 2017, during this time they have made a very generous contribution each year.  This makes it possible for us to run our nationwide Christmas parties and events.

These events enable us to bring together children, teenagers and their families that are on a similar journey.  Families are able to connect with each other, and to not feel alone on their child’s journey with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis or other Autoimmune diseases.

THANK YOU HUGO CHARITABLE TRUST for supporting the children and families of Kids With Arthritis NZ.
