Shooting at Christchurch City mosque, one man arrested

It's with a heavy heart I share this story. Unfortunately, many lives were lost and many people were injured when a gunman opened fire at two central Christchurch mosques during afternoon prayers on Friday which is today.

Let us take this opportunity to show our solidarity with the victims and encourage love, tolerance, and unity. All funds raised are going to be distributed to the families in Christchurch.

About us

We are one of the international branches of Yayasan Dana Kebajikan Muslim Malaysia which focuses on being a platform to build up the youth towards giving back to the community.

We registered ourselves as Handshake People in New Zealand and had worked with various organizations throughout New Zealand in achieving our missions and visions.

Use of funds

Donations will go to help the victims and community effected by the shooting. We do have a few contacts in Christchurch but they can't be reach at the moment due to the shock. But will update this as soon as we get the direct link of beneficiaries.

Hi there,

Firstly, we would love to show our big gratitude by saying thousands of thank you to all who support this cause.

We just had a meeting with both government and non-government bodies such as victim supports, department of the internal affair, and Muslim organizations to decide on the distribution of all funds to the affected families.

Let us hope this collective effort will be ease and can be executed efficiently.

Thanks
