Refuge Database

Every refuge in NZ needs a group of Aunties to get them what they need. Every refuge needs financial assistance. All are run as separate charities, all get funding from the MSD. Some are partially funded, some are fully funded. Regardless, they all need your assistance.

This is not a comprehensive list, and it works from North to South.
