Wellington Children’s Hospital was the FIRST children’s hospital in  New Zealand (13 March 1912). The current children’s hospital is over 30 years old and in need of replacement. Thanks to Mr Mark Dunajtschik’s generous donation to build and donate a new children’s hospital, we can provide the best medical care for sick children.

Mr Dunajtschik’s wonderful donation will see the building of the hospital. The fit-out and state of the art medical equipment including wellness and child friendly areas will be funded by the Foundation with support from the community.
