The Auckland Refugee Family Trust raises funds to reunite refugee families.

Many refugees in New Zealand have been forced to flee their own country due to war and persecution.

Often they are alone or separated from family members who remain in unsafe situations overseas. They are desperate about the safety and survival of those relatives left behind and are unable to settle well until they are reunited.

The Auckland Refugee Family Trust raises funds to bring those families back together.

The process of family reunification for refugees is costly and lengthy. Once visas have been issued to the successful few, it is heart breaking when the last hurdle of securing money for the airfares proves insurmountable. Visas will expire if airfares cannot be purchased.

Trust funds are awarded to refugee applicants – as funds permit – whose immediate family members have been assessed and approved by New Zealand immigration service as having a valid case for reunification.

Wonderful news!  24 August 2021

We are beyond thrilled to report that one of the families we have been in contact with in Kabul - a mother and eight children - has arrived safely in Auckland, thanks to an evacuation flight. They are now in quarantine. Our hearts are with all the women and children still in danger and we will continue to help in any way we can - but today we are thankful for one more family about to be reunited.

If you haven't already, please keep in touch by signing up to our newsletter via our website: or following us on facebook:
