The Compassion Soup Kitchen has a rich history in the Wellington community

Operating since 1901, The Compassion Soup Kitchen has a rich history in the Wellington community, and they strive to ensure that the mission of Suzanne Aubert, who founded the organisation, is kept alive through their work/mahi with people on the margins of society. Thank you for the work you do from the team at United Way NZ. If you can help with their 12 days of Soup Kitchen Christmas needs please contact The Compassion Soup Kitchen in Wellington
