New Zealand: Christchurch
"On the 22nd of February 2011 Christchurch experienced an earthquake of such violence that it stole from us the lives of dozens of people, and dramatically altered the lives of tens of thousands more. All who were caught up in that earthquake, all who have seen the images and read the stories, have been horrified by it its scale and by its callous disregard for so much that we held dear. It felled buildings, destroyed roads, caused terrible injuries and tore up the very earth we walk upon. It has left scars that will never be erased from our land, or from our hearts."
John Key, New Zealand Prime Minister.

" After watching the 2009 Television NZ documentary “Someone, Somewhere Loves Me” it truly inspired us to try and help. During a European holiday last year we toured Romania and were privileged to visit Casakiwi – the Romanian home established by Orphans Aid – and spend quality time with the wonderful staff and children. The lives of these orphaned children would have been very different if it had not been for Orphans Aid International. We have no doubt this is the same in the other countries OAI provide help as none have welfare systems as we have come to accept in New Zealand. We are honoured to assist in anyway we are able."
