Rotary District 9940 has a partnership commitment with the Hospitals Foundation, official charity of Wellington Regional Hospital, to raise $400,000 for two Whanau Rooms in the new Wellington Regional Children's Hospital – one on each of the surgical and medical wards.

Each one will have their own play deck, an indoor play area for patients as well as a dedicated area for whanau with a kitchen, lounge, dining and sleep room for parents/ guardians who have a child in ICU. This provides vitally important support at this critical time in a child’s life. Naming recognition for Rotary will also be given for these rooms for an initial period of 7 years from the date the new Children’s Hospital is open to the public.
