Supporting our communities has become harder with so many deserving charities to contribute to. For this reason, we have given each member of our team here at Kings Seeds the opportunity to choose a charity close to their heart to support through the purchases of a nominated product from our range. The proceeds of the chosen product will go to their chosen charity for the month up to the value of $250
For the month of June, Traycee has decided to support Cystic Fibrosis New Zealand, with the proceeds from Chamomile Roman - 4680. Traycee is a big supporter of the work Cystic Fibrosis NZ and wants to raise money to support a new breakthrough treatment called Trikafta that is currently not subsidized. She selected Chamomile Roman as the lovely aroma helps to promote a sense of well-being.
About cystic fibrosis
CF is a serious and ultimately terminal genetic condition which affects more than 540 people in New Zealand.
CF causes the body to produce thick, sticky mucus that results in serious clinical consequences for multiple organs, including the lungs, pancreas, liver, intestines, and the reproductive system.
People with CF experience frequent pulmonary infections, and other complications such as CF-related diabetes, that substantially reduce their quality of life and life expectancy.
Current treatment in New Zealand focuses on the symptoms of CF, with the aim of slowing the progression of the condition and enhancing quality of life.
People with CF endure a life-long, demanding and time-consuming daily regime of lung clearance and medication, together with regular medical check-ups, increasingly frequent hospitalisations, and in some cases lung transplantation.
About Cystic Fibrosis NZ
Cystic Fibrosis NZ supports the New Zealand CF community by providing information, advice and financial assistance to individuals and their families throughout their journey with CF.
Cystic Fibrosis NZ advocates on behalf of the CF community for the best health care wherever people live and for access to up-to-date medicines and equipment.
Our team of CF Social Workers visit and support families in their homes and medical settings, we facilitate parent to parent support, provide vouchers and allowances during hospitalisations, welfare assistance during hardship, mobile medical equipment, provide assistance towards organ transplant costs and, when necessary, end of life support.
We receive less than 4% government funding and rely on the generosity of everyday New Zealanders to meet the ongoing needs of our community.
