Maria is a Kiwi ‘born and bred’, living in Auckland. Prior to joining the cbm team, she worked in her local church as a Children and Families leader.
My passion for cbm:
Prior to joining the cbm team my experience was in working with the children and families of our lovely Aotearoa. My work at cbm has broadened my vision as I gain new perspectives and increasing understanding for those in other countries who face the double disadvantage of poverty and disability. I consider it a huge privilege to work for cbm and to be part of helping to make a difference in lives of people of all ages and stages.
My experiences that affirm this belief:
Being part of sharing the love of Jesus in such a practical way brings me such joy. Hearing the stories of lives being changed and hope being restored, through the work of cbm and its partners, is truly inspiring.
