Making a safer world with
New Zealand Red Cross

New Zealand Red Cross is part of the largest humanitarian organisation in the world – a network of staff and volunteers who are dedicated to improving lives in our own backyard and around the world.

They help out real New Zealanders every day, whether it’s by providing meals on wheels, preparing communities for emergencies, supporting disaster response and recovery or teaching first aid for free in New Zealand schools.

Why we support New Zealand Red Cross

At AMI we’re all about working together to help make our world a little safer, and our friends at New Zealand Red Cross are too. That’s why we’ve teamed up to help build resilience, connectedness and safety within New Zealand communities.

Junior Responders

You’re never too young to learn first aid and sometimes when something big goes wrong, it only takes someone small to put things right. That’s why AMI is supporting the People Savers programme, enabling New Zealand Red Cross to train 5,000 Kiwi kids in first aid.

This means that children across New Zealand know how to respond in an emergency while also keeping themselves safe, with skills they’ll remember for a lifetime.

Winter Warmers

People all over New Zealand struggle to keep warm in the cold weather during winter.

New Zealand Red Cross and AMI staff worked together to provide winter care packages to over 200 vulnerable households in the Taranaki region last winter, making a massive difference to Kiwis who find winter tough.
