From Japan we watched with heartbreak as cyclone Gabrielle and the subsequent flooding wreaked devastation across New Zealand. To date, 11 people have lost their lives, approximately 1,500 homes have suffered damage, and several thousand people have been displaced along the east coast of the North Island. Local communities have been greatly impacted and will continue to suffer for years to come with businesses, farms, factories, and vineyards -including those with trading relationships with Japan – having been destroyed.

We want the people of Gisborne and the surrounding areas to know that they are not forgotten, and we are with them. To help in our own small way, the ANZCCJ is proud to support a flood relief fundraiser event for SuperGrans Tairawhiti Trust a longstanding registered charity operating across Gisborne and the East Coast region. The incredible organisation has been providing grass roots support of meals, emergency care and essential resources to people who have been directly displaced. On an ongoing basis, SuperGrans whanau (extended family) mentors will continue to share their knowledge and skills with people in their communities based on the concept of kaitiaki mentoring (the sharing of generational knowledge).

A team of people in Japan with connections to New Zealand have come together to host this event which will include an auction of generously donated gifts and experiences from individuals and businesses across Japan and New Zealand. The individuals involved are connected with the organisations listed in the sponsors and partners section below. All profits from ticket sales and proceeds from the auction will go directly to SuperGrans.

We invite you to check out the exciting charity auction page, which is now live and will run until the night of the event. This unique opportunity is open to individuals based in Japan and New Zealand and features a range of fantastic prizes, including wine, signed rugby jerseys, hotel stays, and even a private art tour of the New Zealand Embassy with Ambassador Cooper. For rugby enthusiasts, the chance to win a dinner with the legendary Steve Hansen and your mates is not to be missed. While some items will only be available for live bidding at the event, there are many others that can be bid on through the website. This means that even if you can't attend the event, you can still participate in the auction and potentially win some amazing prizes while supporting a good cause.

ニュージーランドを大型サイクロン「ガブリエル」が直撃し、深刻な被害が出たとのニュースを、心が痛む思いで日本から見ていました。11 名が命を落とし、およそ1,500戸が被害を受け、同国北島を中心に数千名が避難所生活を余儀なくされています。地域の経済にも大きな影響を及ぼしました。被害を受けた地元の企業や農場、工場、ぶどう園の中には日本と取引している先もあります。この被害は、今後何年にもわたってコミュニティに影響をもたらすでしょう。

ANZCCJは、ニュージーランドのともだちを支援するための「水害復興支援チャリティーイベント」開催のサポートをします。被災地であるギズボーンとその周辺地域の方々に、日本にいながらも応援している気持ちをお届けするとともに、イベントによる収益をチャリティ団体 SuperGrans (スーパー・グランズ)に寄付します。SuperGransは、被災者の方々へ食事や緊急ケア、必需品等を提供する草の根活動をしているニュージーランドの認定チャリティ団体です。SuperGransのWhanau (ファナウ=大家族)のメンターは、カイティアキ Kaitiaki 育成 (ニュージーランドの先住民であるマオリ族の概念、世代間の知識の共有)というコンセプトのもと、自分たちの知識や経験を地域の人々へ伝える活動を継続的に行い、日頃から地元のコミュニティに貢献しています。
