Trust Teina

TRUST TEINA is a charity created in memory of Teina Terei who was taken in 2016 due to cancer complications. 

The objective of the trust is to create awareness of the great need of Maori and Pacifika bone marrow donors, as the country desperately needs more Maori and Pasifika men between the ages of 18-40 years to become registered donors.

Donating blood is great, donating bone marrow is greater and donating organs is the greatest.

New Zealand Blood Service is waiting for whanau to join the fight against cancer – donating saves lives!
