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:

Red Cross 

World Vision



International Rescue Committee

Save The Children



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.
