New Zealand earthquake – donations and support

February 25th, 2011By Category: Uncategorized

Disaster-relief teams from many countries including Japan have been dispatched to New Zealand to help local authorities there deal with the immediate impact of this week’s earthquake. Work has continued around centers such as the collapsed CTV building housing the King’s Education language school where more than 70 people, including a large number of Japanese students, are still feared to be trapped.

You can follow more frequent updates at our sister site, Japan Today, as well as find out about how to help on the New Zealand Red Cross page.

Travel updates are available from the Air New Zealand – Christchurch Quake Support Facebook page.

For those unfamiliar with disaster-relief and earthquake support, there are a number of local sources of information in Japan, including your local government office.
