GC Aid was established in 2008 to focus our attention on humanitarian needs to provide for the relief of suffering.
Many of our Mission Partners and affiliated organisations are involved with these adversities as part of their daily ministries. The goal for GC Aid is to assist in the transformation of communities both within and outside New Zealand with the use of resources that we may be able to provide. Our focus has primarily been given to disaster relief. Considerable funds have come through GC Aid for disasters in Australia, the Philippines, Samoa, Japan, the Horn of Africa, Christchurch and Haiti. GC Aid sincerely thanks those who have supported projects in these times of extreme need.
