Together with Caritas Aotearoa New Zealand, Wellington Catholic Social Services is accepting donations to support the victims and communities affected by the recent floods and slips in the Marlborough and Nelson regions. Donations made to Catholic Social Services will be combined to send to the mayoral funds in both regions and evenly spread across the two regions.
The weather in recent weeks has caused extensive damage to roads and land in the Marlborough and Nelson regions and has forced some families to relocate after homes have been damaged. While the bad weather has eased, road users have been urged to take extreme care and are advised only to travel for essential trips only.
Several roads remain closed due to the slips, and while the weather has eased in recent days, the wider recovery is expected to take years.
Wellington Catholic Social Services is accepting donations to help with the recovery and to help those affected by the weather events. Donations can be made to Catholic Social Services online using our Donation page or via our Bank account: 02-0560-0213864-00. Please include your First and Last name, "Floods" as the code. If you would like a receipt, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
