Hybrex in the Community
Hybrex is proud to be involved with a number of charities both in New Zealand
and in communities overseas.
The Kids Foundation
The Kids Foundation is a not-for-profit organization caring for PID children,
teenagers and their families, as will as bone marrow and liver transplant children.
The human body fights infection by means of the
immune defense system. Some people however, are born with an immune system that is
faulty. They are missing some or all of the body's defense weapons. Such people are
said to have Primary Immunodeficiency Disorder (PID).
Hybrex provides the IT Technology and Support for IDFNZ / Kids Foundation in the form
of Server and Network Support, VPN platform for around the country and a Telecommunications
platform that includes GSM and VoIP elements.

Aria was born on Saturday 3rd June, 2006.
Two weeks later she was diagnosed with a very rare condition of the bowel known as total intestinal aganglionosis
or total Hirschsprung’s disease. There is no cure and it means she would never be able to digest food.
Total intestinal aganglionosis is where there are no nerves cell throughout the entire bowel to squeeze the food along
to be digested. Hirschsprungs is common where a portion of the bowel contains no nerves and can be fixed by removing the
effected portion of bowel and reconnecting the healthy remaining bowel. Aria’s form of the disease means this is not an
option because there is no healthy bowel.
This news was devastating to her parents Hamish and Anita who were told that nothing could be done to save their baby.
It looked like the end of the journey for Aria but really it was the start of something amazing. Dear friends visited the next day
and brought hope. That hope was the possibility of a bowel transplant and also the idea of Aria going home on TPN (total parental nutrition).
Auto Telecom is Proud to Support Aria and her family, we challenge any other Communications company to reach out and give generously to young Aria.
