Northland COVID-19 Recovery fund
The Northland COVID-19 Recovery Fund (Northland COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund) was created in response to the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. Funding went towards essential services supporting our most vulnerable Northland communities dealing with COVID-19, and to Northland DHB patients struggling to cope with the health and economic effects of COVID-19 on top of their existing health problems.
Funds for essential services were allocated via recommendations from a select Panel including Northland District Health Board, Civil Defence and Ministry of Social Development. Funding was prioritised for services that provided welfare support for vulnerable people, families, the elderly, kuia and kaumatua who live in rural and isolated communities.
All funds for essential services have now been delivered out, but the need for support for our most vulnerable communities has returned.
Are you in a position to help?
Donate today to help these essential services to support our most vulnerable communities.
We continue to deliver out the remaining Patient Support Funds working in partnership with Northland DHB and its Social Workers. Patients are often struggling from long-term or co-morbid health conditions and financial hardship, and are living in rural, isolated communities. For these people, the stress of an added risk to their health along with reduced family support due to lockdown and loss of income can seriously affect their health and quality of life.
If you can assist with a donation, please help us build these funds up again to support our most vulnerable people at their greatest time of need.
