Bill's Family Resettlement Fund

$33,550 of $50,000 goal
Given by 224 generous donors in 25 days

This will help Bill's Family get going as New Zealanders.


Bill (Bashir) is a great guy who served New Zealand well. Now, after building a life and a business in Afghanistan he has had to drop everything and resettle with his wife and 5 kids in NZ.

This fund is designed to get Bill the basic necessities he will need so that he and his family can get on and be productive New Zealanders.

Craig Wilson's involvement (page creator)

Bill was my friend and trusted sidekick. I will be helping him and the family with their integration.

Use of funds

This will fund a car purchase; rent and purchase of household basics. Things Bill will need to get a job and also things to help the kids get underway at school. Any money not used by Bill will be passed to other Afghan families in a similar position.

Bill, I visited Afghanistan twice before 1980 and considered it one of my very favourite countries and peoples, from the more than 80 I have been to, and I hope you find NZ likewise. Welcome, George.
