2020 was a tough year. Together we faced floods, fires and a global pandemic, and every time, New Zealand Red Cross was there – getting communities prepared, responding and providing psychological first aid, while day-to-day giving a warm Kiwi welcome to former refugees, supporting vulnerable people and sending highly trained delegates to help people in need overseas.

This lifesaving assistance is only made possible with the help of people like you, people committed to making a difference for those caught up in vulnerable situations.

Donate today and help those in their time of need. Whether in your community every day, by sending help around the world, or bringing families together at last, your support is a sign of hope, helping the people who need it most.

We don’t know where we’ll be needed next, but we do know because of you, we’ll be there.

More about us

Our programmes include delivering Meals on Wheels to people at home, providing emergency response and welfare support in times of emergency and disaster, helping to settle former refugees, and much more.

Red Cross Appeal 2021  11 March 2021

Posted by: New Zealand Red Cross

We are a charity and we need your help. As a charity we rely on support from donations and volunteers. Help out during Red Cross Appeal by donating or by volunteering during our street collection. Every little bit helps. For more information see

We have a responsibility to be ready for whatever is around the corner. As a mandated emergency response organisation working alongside Civil Defence, we need to be ready to help when disaster strikes, so it is our responsibility to ensure we fundraise to have the resources we need to respond. While we often fundraise once emergencies happen, being prepared and having funding and resources already in place for immediate response is critical and lifesaving.
