  • Kia Kaha Christchurch, one year on ...

Wed, 22nd Feb 2012

One year ago here at work, we were all glued to the internet, watching in horror as events unfolded in Christchurch.  Quite a few of our ex-staff have settled in ChCh & many of our customers are from there & industry colleagues who have businesses there as well & we could only watch & hope...

Despite being far away we felt people's pain & grief as they lived & continue to live through mother nature's onslaught ...

Over the hours & days & weeks that followed I was immensely proud to be a Kiwi & see how Cantabrians pulled together & the rest of NZ pulled together in support of the victims.  It was intensely emotional to hear & see the outporings of support from all over the world.

We have run a few collections at work & will continue to do so, for short of our emotional support, the only other way we know how is to donate money to various causes that are helping in the rebuild of Christchurch.  We have also been priviliged to be able to host a few families from ChCh who escaped to recharge their batteries.

No longer front page news, nevertheless you are constantly in our thoughts & in our hearts Christchurch.

KIA KAHA
