As the rescue operation continues in Christchurch, the work to provide basic needs for survivors is underway. Oxfam now has emergency water provision personnel working with Civil Defence in Christchurch. We have offered emergency equipment and supplies if necessary, but as yet, the Government has not requested it.
Our thoughts are with everyone involved in this tragedy and our efforts remain focused on coordinating with the Government to provide the best help we can.
If people would like to help directly, the best thing to do right now is to make a donation to the Red Cross.
