New Zealand

Suddenly, one minute can change everything, which is exactly what happened to all of us in Christchurch on 22 February 2011 at 12.51pm. We were struck by a devastating earthquake shattering our beautiful city and changing lives forever.
We are in the throws of restoring the Endometriosis New Zealand office, shoveling sewage laden liquefaction, cleaning up, putting furniture and resources back and clearing debris in an attempt to regain a sense of normality. Yet, while the focus is on rebuilding Christchurch, endometriosis remains.
Our major campaign has had to be cancelled because of the dire situation with the earthquake and Endometriosis New Zealand is now launching THE BIG HUG APPEAL which raises awareness of endometriosis in New Zealand, supports core services nationwide and will contribute to the immediate needs of Christchurch girls and women who have endometriosis and supports their families.
Details of how everyone can be involved in THE BIG HUG APPEAL are at:www.nzendo.co.nz
