Take My Hands is a social enterprise that connects those that have, with those that need it. We are collecting usable medical equipment and resources that can no longer be used in New Zealand and redistributing them to organisations that work with those in need in the Asia Pacific Region. So far we’ve sent over 94,000kg of to 15 different countries, helping more than 281075 people, creating over $9 million in impact, and all for under $43,000. Recently we have grown into connecting those with knowledge and expertise with those that need using a cross sector collective practice approach. We are focused on building biomedical expertise in the Pacific.
