Hilary and her family sponsor two boys in Zambia

"I'm delighted to lend my support to ChildFund. As a family we sponsor two children in Zambia. What's particularly special about the boys we sponsor is the fact they're brothers. Our boys enjoy writing letters to them and we all love hearing what the boys are up to and the wonderful work that ChildFund is doing in their community."

In 2011, Hilary travelled to Kenya for TV3’s 60 Minutes to report on the Horn of Africa famine. There she visited the Turkana people who were struggling to survive the devastating drought and were being supported by funds raised through ChildFund New Zealand.
