Vicki-Anne shares her life journey in this interview and we talk
in detail about her founding NZ Gifts of Love & Strength.
This is a great new charity which was set up to support victims of
different events such as the shootings in Christchurch. We
also chat about her background and things she has faced in her
life, including Lyme disease, which I did not know much
about. I really enjoyed my conversation with Vicki-Anne and
am sure you will as well.

An article on the initiative:
From Vicki-Anne: "During Covid-19 we were an essential service and
collaborated with Student Volunteer Army screening potential
volunteers throughout NZ. We responded to several requests to
assist people from Canterbury Civil Defence Welfare Team.
We are always looking for donors of new items from businesses and
individuals. We always welcome new volunteers to help us. We also
love collaborating with other non-profits.
We will be popping up at various markets this winter in Canterbury
with a range of various craft items we have made and a nice food
treat to take home. (Not saying what it is as its a unique
Conrad and has formed a collaboration with us ongoing for
fundraising for all of our clients. Our new lot of Red Cross
Refugees arrive this coming Friday."
Regarding Lyme disease: "I guess I would like to mention that its
not just ticks that carry Lyme disease and its coinfections. Its
spread by migratory birds. If anyone has multiple unexplained
health issues there is a questionnaire by world leading Lyme
disease specialist Dr Horowitz that most Doctors around the
world rely on for diagnosis. If you need testing please contact
Vicki at NZ Gifts <email@example.com> who can
advise best labs in the world to get tested at."
