Māia Health Foundation And MG Marketing Kick Off Partnership

August 10 2017

PRESS RELEASE

Māia Health Foundation And MG Marketing Kick Off New Partnership

Māia Health Foundation is proud to announce MG Marketing, a leading supplier of fresh produce to New Zealand, as the foundation’s new Founding Business Partner.

MG Marketing will be contributing a significant donation to Māia for the next three years. In addition to this partnership, MG is also generously providing the fresh produce for the banquet that will be served at Māia’s inaugural charity dinner, the Feast, on Saturday 19 August 2017.

Peter Hendry, Chief Executive at MG Marketing, says, “We’re thrilled to support Māia Health Foundation. Māia and MG focus on different facets of health - from a medical versus a food and lifestyle stance - but we’re fundamentally united in our desire to promote and maintain the well-being of our communities. By supporting Māia, we’ve gained a tremendous opportunity to further enhance MG’s commitment to health.”

“We’re very pleased that MG Marketing is joining the charge to enhance the health services in Canterbury,” says Michael Flatman, Chief Executive at Māia Health Foundation. “MG’s support greatly helps the ongoing development of Canterbury’s health services, which means we’re that much closer to reaching our goal of raising a total $5.2M to bring essential enhancements to Christchurch Hospital.”

Māia Health Foundation is a non-profit launched in May 2016 with two initial projects: enhancements to the Christchurch Hospital’s rooftop helipad, including the creation of a purpose-built clinical support unit so trauma patients can receive life-saving treatment upon touchdown; and major enhancements to the children’s health facilities, such as creating shared family spaces and installing parent beds for 60 new children’s rooms in the hospital.
