How your donation helps
Disasters, both natural and man-made, can happen at any time, anywhere in the world. People who never expected it can find themselves in urgent need of shelter, drinking water or medical aid. You can make sure that New Zealand Red Cross is always there to help when disaster strikes, bringing emergency supplies, medical care and relief to stricken families and communities.
By supporting New Zealand Red Cross, you'll be helping people in so many ways:
- refugee settlement - help give a warm welcome to former refugees so they feel part of their new community in Aotearoa
- disaster readiness, response and recovery - provide regularly training so our volunteers can respond to disasters as soon as they happen and stay through the long-term recovery stage
- international aid - support our international delegates to provide much-needed expertise in situations of conflict and disaster
- community programmes - wherever you are, we're there too, in plain sight or behind the scenes, supporting vulnerable people in your community
Your donation goes to 'where the need is greatest' - helping the people who need it most.
