New Zealand's 2010 Children's Health - Butterflies

Of all the people in our society, our children are surely among the most deserving of unconditional love, unstinting support and opportunities to reach their true potential.

Te Puna Whaiora - the New Zealand Foundation for Child and Family Health and Development - specialises in helping at-risk children aged five to 12 to overcome barriers to healthy lifestyles.

New Zealand Post once again supports its work, with three beautifully illustrated 'butterfly' stamps issued on July 7, 2010 - each with a 10-cent surcharge that goes to support Te Puna Whaiora's seven Children's Health Camps.

This 81st annual Children's Health stamp issue recognises that, like the butterfly, our most vulnerable children sometimes need wings to fly.
