NZ Red Cross Launches Pacific Nations COVID-19 Appeal

New Zealand Red Cross is launching a Pacific Nations COVID-19 Appeal today to support Pacific Island nations as they battle with the impact of COVID-19.

New Zealand Red Cross General Manager for International Programmes, Vivienne Euini, says, “over the past few months, we have seen lives and communities across the Pacific overwhelmed by the rapid increase in COVID-19 cases.”

“Securing funds in this way enables the Red Cross to flex and respond to different needs as they present themselves across the Pacific. We have assessed how we can best support a response to meet the needs created by the significant impact of COVID-19. It is likely some of the funds raised will go to support the work of Red Cross delegates in Fiji, as well as our other Pacific nation neighbours,” says Ms. Euini.
