Charity crowdfunding page Givealittle has raised millions of dollars for the families.
“Dozens of families have been bereaved and many more injured…they deserve our help and support!” the page says.
“All donations received to this page will be used to provide support and resources for people affected by the Christchurch shootings and their family members.”
LaunchGood, a crowdfunding platform focused on Muslim communities worldwide has so far raised more than $2 million AUD.
“All funds raised are going to be distributed to the families by NZIIC – New Zealand Islamic Information Centre,” it says on the fundraising page.
“All proceeds will help with the immediate, short-term needs of the grieving families. No amount of money will bring back their loved ones, but we do hope to lessen their burden in some way.”
Al Manar Charitable Trust
The non-profit Islamic trust is based in Auckland and is supporting the LaunchGood campaign. You can also donate directly to the trust on its website.
“This is to offer a simple help from the community around New Zealand to support the affected families,” the Trust said in a statement.
“It is a very tragic situation in Christchurch. Many of our beloved brothers and sisters were martyred. Let’s remain united as one nation!”
NZ charity Victim Support has set up an EverydayHero page to raise funds.
“All donations received through the fund will be ring-fenced to provide resources and support to those affected by this horrific event,” the group says.
