A regular gift from you can make a life-changing difference for people in need both here in Aotearoa New Zealand and around the world.

We call our regular supporters 'Project Partners'. This is because by giving an on-going donation you are ensuring that every day, we can reach those who need us — you become a valued partner in our humanitarian work.

Whether it’s a family caught out by disaster or weather-related emergency, a neighbour struggling with social isolation and in need of a friendly face and a hot meal, or proving support to our Pacific neighbours, those we support rely on Kiwis coming together and giving a regular donation to ensure that wherever they are, they have the help and assistance they need.

Your support as a Project Partner is invaluable when it comes to helping vulnerable people across the street and around the world. As a New Zealand Red Cross Project Partner you will be making it possible for us to prepare to reach people through disaster, disease and conflict, with crucial humanitarian aid.

How your regular donations help

Your donations go to wherever the need for help is greatest.

Here in Aotearoa New Zealand, you’ll be supporting the delivery of important services and programmes in our communities:

  • Pathways to Settlement – supporting former refugees as they set up their new homes and giving them the tools they need to rebuild their lives
  • Disaster response and recovery – providing life-changing help to people, families and communities who have been affected by unpredictable and often devastating emergencies and natural disasters, and assisting those in disaster-prone areas to build resilience
  • Meals on Wheels – delivering over 700,000 hot meals a year to people who are ill, elderly or recovering from hospital treatment, giving them the extra support they need to maintain their health and independence.

Internationally, your donations may also help us respond to humanitarian crises and emergencies:

  • International aid – providing immediate and long-term relief in the event of a natural disaster or other emergency such as conflict or disease.
  • International delegates – supporting our international aid workers to provide their much-needed expertise to assist other Red Cross Red Crescent Societies support people and communities impacted by disaster or conflict.
  • Pacific programmes – Supporting our Pacific neighbours to prepare, respond and recover from disaster.
