St John of God Hauora Trust

Today at our residential care service St John of God Halswell we held a service in solidarity with the families who are faced with unimaginable loss and trauma from Friday's terrorist attack. We mourn and stand in solidarity with our Muslim brothers and sisters, kiwis all of us, who have had so much taken from them. Should you wish to support families affected by this tragedy Red Cross is providing assistance to families. The Christchurch Foundation has also established the Our People, Our City fund that will be coordinated in collaboration with Muslim communities. Givealittle has also given over its home page to a number of other funds in support of families affected. Kia ora, kia kaha, kia manwanui.
