The Catholic Diocese of Christchurch has an earthquake recovery fund, established by Bishop Barry Jones, to manage the distribution of money received after the 4 September earthquake and subsequently.

The goals of the Fund are to:

  • alleviate human suffering.
  • assist community development and cultural activities especially those that seek to help rebuild community spirit and resilience in parishes and the wider community.
  • help parishes continue to meet the pastoral needs of their parishioners post-earthquake.
  • help parishes prepare for future events / improved disaster preparedness.

Funding is still available and applications are sought from parishes, organisations and interested individuals wishing to make a difference in the lives of those affected by the earthquakes. Organisations do not have to be Catholic to apply.

Information on the eligibility, how to apply, and a list of recipients can be found here.
