New Zealand Red Cross is pleased to hear that the new government’s policy is to double New Zealand’s refugee quota, and the organisation is urging that the change be implemented swiftly.

Youngsters at refugee camps in northern Greece have had their first ever dental appointments, thanks to Doctors of the World’s Mobile Dentistry Unit funded by the European Commission.

Cyclone season in the South Pacific has begun. New Zealand Red Cross will be closely monitoring the formation of tropical cyclones and their progression. We're working with communities to build their resilience, and are ready to provide early assistance to vulnerable communities who need it most.
