The Starship Foundation is a social-profit organisation that raises funds so that Starship Children's Health, New Zealand's only national children's hospital, can better care for the nearly 120,000 visits each year from its young patients. Through funds donated from New World and through the generosity of New World customers, we've been able to make a real difference for many New Zealand families from around the country.
More than 800 fruit baskets each year
We’re passionate about healthy food which is why every week New World delivers crates of fresh fruit to the Starship Hospital parent kitchens, to help give family members access to good food options while they support their loved ones in hospital.
Keeping Starship Flying
New World stores and customers came together to support the Starship National Air Ambulance Service by buying a paper plane for just $3 at your local New World store. All funds raised from the paper planes went towards the $1.5m needed each year to fund the critical Air Ambulance service.
