Eastern Bay Community Foundation Whakaari Fund
The Foundation is aware there will be a very long period of recovery for many who were involved in this tragedy.Bay of Plenty
The Eastern Bay Community Foundation Chair, Doug Bull, says that it’s important to provide a mechanism for people to show their longer-term support for victims.
“We know that there will be long-term needs, including rehabilitation and trauma-counselling of NZ- based victims and support workers, and we will safeguard these funds for where the greatest needs are in the future. In the meantime, other agencies, such as Victim Support and the Red Cross, are undertaking their essential work on the ground, and we urge people to continue to also donate for immediate needs,” Mr Bull said.
Decisions on how donations to the Eastern Bay Community Foundation Whakaari Fund will be used will be made in collaboration with affected groups and victims, and will be focused on medium to long-term support.
Eastern Bay Community Foundation is part of a network of Community Foundations from around NZ, which enables generous people to affect change in their local community and to support community needs.
