In one day, Auckland received nearly all the rainfall it normally expects in a summer, causing unprecedented flooding. People have been displaced from their homes and businesses and emergency services have been overwhelmed. Aucklanders will confront the damage from this flooding for months to come. Based on our experience, GlobalGiving has learned that it is vital to get funds to locally-led nonprofits that can respond to community needs in both the short and long-term.
All donations to the Auckland New Zealand Flood Relief Fund will support flood relief and recovery efforts in Auckland. Initially, the fund helps first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, medicine, and shelter. As needs emerge, we will support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations in the impacted area.
How Your Donation Will Be Used
When you donate to GlobalGiving's Auckland New Zealand Flood Relief Fund, your donation will be used to:
- Provide food and emergency medical supplies to people
- Support temporary relief and emergency supplies for displaced families
- Support recovery and rebuilding efforts in the region
- Meet other needs that emerge from the impacted communities
