Amelia is no stranger to pain. She has weathered major health storms, had several surgeries and lives with learning disabilities. Her medical bills and cost of therapy has caused financial strain on the family.
She is one of more than 6,000 children and young people supported by Variety Kiwi Kid Sponsorship.
“The help my daughter Amelia has received from Variety has enabled her to wear the correct school uniform, attend classes that require fees, and enjoy treats on her birthday and Christmas.
“She treasures receiving help, and this has inspired her to spend time helping her peers and the elderly. She is now on her final year at school and will soon graduate.
“The sponsorship has made an incredible difference. And when my daughter has moved on and has her own life, I know she will give back and donate to Variety.”
