Introducing  MEND

MEND was set up in New Zealand as a non-government organisation ( NGO) 20 years ago and has since been supporting local organisations in developing countries to improve the mobility and independence of their disabled members.

We have helped set up rehabilitation centres in Nepal, Kashmir India and Ghana by facilitating links and support from generous and caring donors. 

Our mission is to "promote self-help, not give sympathy" 

We are also recycling hearing aids and artificial limbs from NZ, Australia and Germany that provide our projects with low cost quality hearing and mobility equipment. MEND has donee status at the Inland Revenue Department (IRD) in NZ so that all personal donations are eligible for a 33.3% rebate with no limit now!


MEND assists people with disabilities by:

1. Providing low-cost mobility equipment and other physio aids that are designed to suit special needs and local conditions.
2. Setting up self-help workshops in developing countries to transfer skills, training and technology.
3. Seeking sponsors and funding for equipment for those that can not afford it.
4. Liaising them with medical and rehabilitation services.
5. Promoting their needs and problems and finding solutions through our resource network.
