    CHARITABLE Organisation in New Zealand

  • promote, popularize the
    rich culture and heritage


The foundation of Uttarakhand Association of New Zealand (UANZ) was laid on 30th of March 2013 in New Zealand to promote, popularize the rich culture and heritage of our homeland Uttarakhand.
One of the members of our association, Shri Jitedra Singh Rana was diagnosed with blood cancer in Sept 2013. UANZ came forward and donated an amount of $1400 for his medical treatment in Mumbai.
'Baduli' that literally means 'hiccup', is a word that is typically used in Uttarakhand folklore when you attribute the occurance of a hiccup to a loved one or a relative thinking of you. Incidentally, for uttarakhandies based out of uttarakhand and our home country, India, this has come to have a bigger meaning in our lives as we indulge from time to time in fond reminiscences of homeland and its people, regardless of occasional hiccup.
In june 2013, a multiday cloudburst in Uttarakhand produced devastating floods and landslides becoming the country's worst natural disaster in the past decade. Barely a month old, UANZ stepped up to the opportunity to provide aid and contributed $12390 in donation proceeds for the Kedarnath Relief Fund.
