Louise BurnieAuckland Co-Ordinator

Hi, I am the Auckland Co-ordinator as well as the Chairperson of Foster Hope which I started in 2010. I grew up in South Africa where my mum taught me the importance of helping others less fortunate.

When I found out about how some children arrive in foster care with only the clothes on their backs, I joined a friend to make up our first “Bears 2 Care” and then “Kits 2 Kids”. Since then, life certainly has been busy as I have 2 children, a business and have my fingers in a few more pies from Beanies for Africa to Project Jonah.

I love the difference that we’re making to so many vulnerable children. Starting Foster Hope has given me the opportunity to meet and learn from some awe-inspiring volunteers and social workers from all over the country. You may never know the difference you personally make to a child but I know that we are making ripples with the work we’re doing.
