Call to NZ govt for Afghanistan

18 September 2021

Something NZ can be proud of is the way we care for others. Anglican Missions has co-signed an open letter with more than 60 charities, civil society groups, and community leaders calling on the NZ government to do more and #ActforAfghanistan now.

Together, the letter is calling on the government to:  

  • Urgently increase humanitarian and development support
  • Establish and ensure safe pathways of relocation and resettlement for Afghan nationals to New Zealand.
  • Establish formal mechanisms to liaise and consult meaningfully with the Afghan community here in Aotearoa New Zealand.
  • Lead international efforts.

 Read more here, including the letter itself.
