COVID-19   LEVEL FOUR Wednesday 25th March 2020.

For the next four weeks the Kidney Kids team will be working from home and keeping in contact with you via phone/email/text.  You can still reach us on 0800 215 437 or 021 126 0054, or by email, [email protected] We are unable to carry out our usual support services such as home/hospital visits, clinics, events and other services.

It will be a difficult and challenging time for us all, but the information given by the Government and the Ministry of Health are where we learn the facts and follow their direction, hence we are working from home.

It is essential that we do as we are asked to prevent the community spread of this virus.

We all must do this to make it work.

Keep in touch socially, not physically, with your neighbours, your family and friends by phone. Facetime, Skype, etc.

Share your clever ideas for entertaining the kids during this time. There are some great ideas being shared around on Facebook so give them a go.

There are essential support services remaining open –

Hospitals, GP and Medical practices, Pharmacies, Supermarkets, Petrol stations, some public transport, Banks and security companies.

WINZ Monday – Friday 7.00am – 6pm   and   Saturday   8.00am – 1pm   ph. 0800 559 009

Housing NZ Monday – Friday   8.00am – 6pm   ph. 0800 801 601

We are all doing this together.

Stay Safe and Well. AND STAY HOME
