Responding to the Refugee Crisis Featured
The current refugee crisis has been described as the worst for almost a quarter of a century.
United Nations spokesperson Stephane Dujarric says “It’s true we live in a moment in history where there’s never been a greater need for humanitarian aid since the United Nations was founded”.
Where can you donate and what can you do to help?
Below is a list of agencies already supporting refugees:
You can also volunteer, The Red Cross need volunteers to help refugees settle in New Zealand, and the Auckland Refugee Council also has a volunteer programme.
You can help by providing employment. Work and Income want to hear from people who have an idea for a project that could help get migrants and refugees into work.
