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 and Adenomyosis.  We provide support to all with endo/ando regardless of age, sex, stage or where you at in your journey.  We advocate for all and help spread awareness for Endo/Adno Warriors. We are also working very hard in advocacy for period poverty, we believe no one should have to budget to bleed.

Some of our achievements/highlights 

  • In Feb 2022 reaching one year of free period packs

  • More media coverage around period poverty, endometriosis, pcos and Adenomyosis

  • Putting together a period campaign called "Not all people who menstruate are women, and not all women menstruate," to acknowledge all genders who menstruate and getting Period Companies such as Moraka Menstrual Cups, AWWA, modibodi, Mint, danu natural, MyCup and more to agree to use inclusive language and images when talking about menstruation.

  • Attending many LGBQT Covid Vaccine Drives to gift free period items to those in need, talk about transitioning and menstruation about all the items out there and helping them to get what works for them and their body.
