Within one hour of the magnitude 7.5 earthquake striking the North Canterbury townships of Kaikoura and Waiau the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) had made an urgent grant of US $10,000 to local Lions Clubs to assist.
Further funds were contributed from the NZ Lloyd Morgan Liosn Clubs Charitable Trust and other Lions clubs from throughout New Zealand. These emergency grants helped with the supply of Bottled water, Blankets and groceries together with hygiene and cleaning materials.
Some goods were from neighbours of Donatello Drive in Rolleston and Halswell School children who had been the recipients of donated goods in the 2011 Christchurch earthquakes.
