Our work in communities all around Aotearoa is vital, and makes a positive difference in people’s lives.
Our sincere thanks to all our supporters – individual donors, companies, community, trust and grant organisations and funders. Without your help, we simply would not have been there for 34,671 victims.
A generous donation of $10,000, the first of three yearly to Victim Support, was made in April for our work supporting the people of Canterbury as they continue to contend with the emotional and physical after-effects of natural disasters.
The Military and Hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem, a chivalric, ecumenical Christian and charitable Order with 50 jurisdictions and a large number of philanthropic projects across the world, selected Victim Support for its work in Canterbury. The funds have been raised by its international Orders, and its generous donation will help Victim Support continue its vital work in supporting earthquake and flood victims in Canterbury.
“Our work in Canterbury continues,” said Victim Support CE, Kevin Tso at the donation event in Christchurch. “We supported people at the time of each emergency, including the recent flooding, and we continue to support many in the aftermath. Some people only now realise they are not coping and need our help.
“This generous donation, made over three years, means we can plan our continuing work here. It also highlights the need we have for funding to provide help for people who suffer through no fault of their own.
“We are so grateful that people around the world have seen the plight of the people of Canterbury and come to their aid. We hope this human act of compassion and generosity will inspire local organisations to consider how they too can support us.”
Christchurch resident and Deputy Grand Prior of The Military and Hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus, Jan Hadfield, said how delighted they are to contribute to the work of Victim Support, work that is “so dear to our hearts.”
Good in the Hood is a nationwide initiative whereby Z Energy through its service stations gives funding to local neighbourhoods to support the things that matter locally, and to make a positive contribution right across New Zealand. Victim Support has gratefully received funding from various Z stations through this initiative.
Thanks Z Energy and all your loyal Z customers who voted for us.
We are grateful to the Community Organisation Grants Scheme (COGS), a community-driven fund that provides grants to non-profit community organisations that deliver community-based social services. COGS funding forms a substantial component of our overall regional fundraising.
We are also very grateful to Trust and Grant providers who support our work in the community. While we are a nationwide organisation, we have teams scattered throughout Aotearoa, providing a service to those that need us – be it in a town, city, or rural community. Every contribution, makes a difference and we thank our supporters, very much.
