It's been just over a week since people on temporary visas (work, student, visitor, RSE) were able to access support through our Visitor Care Manaaki Manuhiri service, and we've been so touched by the response of people who've already received help ❤️
Some shared that this support will help them get through until they are able to get on their flight booked home. People have also told us how they helped their whānau apply, others explained that this support will enable them to survive while they search for work during these difficult times.
If you, or someone you know, is on a temporary visa and is really struggling right now, you can head to www.redcross.org.nz... to find out what assistance is provided and how to apply.

Local volunteers and the St Andrew’s Village “Knitting and Nattering” group donated 32 handmade blankets to the charity Give a Kid a blanket.
It took a year of painstaking work to create the coverings.
