A fundraising appeal has been launched to help the 7-year-old girl mauled by dogs in Murupara.
Japanese girl Sakurako Uehara remains under sedation in a critical but stable condition in the intensive care unit at Middlemore Hospital.
She was attacked by four dogs at a Murupara property on Monday.
Her family does not qualify for state-funded care and it's expected Sakurako faces a long journey to recovery.
The Middlemore Foundation for Health Innovation guarantees every cent donated will go directly to the cause.
