Red Cross launches emergency appeal for flooding

Red Cross has been responding to the severe flooding across the country and has launched an emergency appeal to further help the people hardest hit.

New Zealand Red Cross Secretary General Tony Paine says Red Cross’ emergency response teams have had a busy weekend responding to the floods, but as the scale of the damage becomes apparent, a comprehensive recovery job will be needed.

“We have launched an emergency appeal to help those most affected by the flooding, both in urban and rural areas, and both in the South and North Island.

100 per cent of funds raised for the June 2015 Floods Appeal will go directly towards helping those worst affected by the flooding. …

    Regardless of ones personal political views….

    Before donating to Red Cross – Please research and review the scandal of how little aid is getting to people on the ground from Red Cross.

    See here for a huge example: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/06/12/red-cross-haiti-spending_n_7571258.html

    There are many ways to support people in need – Red Cross have been proven not to pass on as $ as they promise (the Haiti example was supposed to be 91c in the dollar).

    Are there any local charities that could be a more direct way of helping our countrymen?

      In this case note from the post: “100 per cent of funds raised for the June 2015 Floods Appeal will go directly towards helping those worst affected by the flooding.”

        Indeed – the point being that they have said this before and not followed thru on it – nor can they provide any proof that this is the case in other responses they have campaigned for.

        Therein lies the problem.

    Sadly charities are needed because we have a government that fails to support its citizens.
    Criminal neglect.
