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.
Congraulations to the winners of the Spirit of St John of God Supreme Award. Watch our CEO Steve Berry's announcement of the winners of this year's Annual Supreme Award, and acknowledgement of all the caregivers across our organisation who work with great dedication every day to support vulnerable people in New Zealand.
