Thank you so much for your donation – it will make a significant difference helping people and families in need, whether in Aotearoa New Zealand, across the Pacific or around the world.   

As the largest humanitarian response organisation in the world, we hope that you are proud of assisting in the delivery of all that we do to protect vulnerable people and strive to make the world a safer place.

We never know when the next emergency will strike, but thanks to you, New Zealand Red Cross will continue to be ready to help those affected. 

Thank you!

We cannot do what we do without people like you. And now, during these uncertain times, your generosity and kindness is needed more than ever!

Whether here in New Zealand or further afield, it’s your donation today that will make a life-changing difference wherever the need is greatest.

Can you help deliver a warm meal and friendly "how are you today?" to elderly or vulnerable members in our communities living in isolation? To provide that extra little bit of support they need to continue living independently at home.

Or will you give a warm Kiwi welcome to former refugees as they arrive in Aotearoa and support them as they settle into their new home and adapt to a life of freedom and safety?

Will you be there for those caught in a disaster? To ensure they immediately have the practical and emotional support they need and let them know they are not alone as they face tragedy and devastation.

It’s your donation today that will impact the lives of those who need it most. Through disasters, crises and isolation, with your support, we can be there for each other.

Also, don’t forget that when you donate over $5.00, you can claim 33.33 percent of it back from IRD!
