We have received offers for donations from around the world. At the moment we all have access to food, water, clothing and shelter. However soon, when the time has come to start rebuilding, some families will be in real financial need and donations at that time will make a difference.
Donations can be send to:
Account name: Canterbury Hebrew Congregation
Bank: Westpac, Merivale Branch, Christchurch
Account No.: 03-1707-0120334-001
reference: earthquake donation
When sending money from outside New Zealand, please remember that there usually is a fee involved. It is best to pool donations rather than send individual ones.
Please be aware that there have already been a number of scam emails going around, pretending to be from reputable organisations such as the Red Cross. If you are in doubt please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
