"Repairing the fabric of Canterbury communities, and supporting all communities within the funding regions of The Canterbury Community Trust, is at the heart of the Special Fund.
The release of $25 million by The Canterbury Community Trust is a one-off fund to support the social infrastructure of Christchurch and minimise the ongoing effects of the quake in the regions the Trust funds. With this fund we hope to knit together the various threads that make us unique."
We are extremely grateful to Rata Foundation for financially supporting this project.
