Our brother and his wife are stranded in Japan due to COVID 19. They are expecting their first child and we need your help to get them home!

With the terrible impact of COVID 19 there are still loads of kiwis left stranded in other countries, including our brother Brandon and sister in law Bridget who are in Japan. They have just shared the exciting news that they are pregnant with their first baby! While they are ecstatic about finally being pregnant, before the pandemic their plan was to come home to NZ to have their baby surrounded by family. The issue is... they are having trouble trying to get flights home. Flights keep getting cancelled and are becoming more expensive. With the stress of trying to organise flights, pay their rent and day to day living costs, they are also paying the added costs of $250 per midwife visit. The latest Bridget can fly home is early August, otherwise they will have to pay $9,000 to give birth in Japan without any family support. The accommodation they currently live in is also not suitable for a baby. When they do finally get home, they will also need to find themselves somewhere to live, buy furniture for their house and baby's nursery. Please help us bring them home... any contribution no matter how small would be a huge help!

Brandon is my brother and Bridget is my sister in law

Use of funds

All funds raised goes directly to Brandon and Bridget. They will use it to pay for their flights home, to pay their rent in Japan and the cost to terminate their lease. Any additional funds would help to set themselves up in NZ

UPDATE:

They have found a flight but it costs $8,900 for them both to return via Australia and even then it’s not fully guaranteed as they can still cancel the flight and it will then cost more.
