Who We Are

Endo Warriors Aotearoa is an organisation aimed at promoting education about endometriosis, Adenomyosis and periods, breaking the stigma around periods, providing free period products to anyone in need, and spreading awareness about Endometriosis, Adenomyosis and Polycystic ovary syndrome. 

OUR MISSION

We are also working very hard in advocacy for better education around Menstruation, supporting all genders who menstruate and fighting to help end period poverty in our community, we believe no one should have to budget to bleed.
