A Christchurch update

(a few before and after shots from around Christchurch. More here)

Hey friends, today is day 5 of the unfolding tragedy in Christchurch New Zealand. As I currently write this there has not been a recovery since Wednesday afternoon, which of course is very worrying as there are still hundreds of people missing. At the moment the death toll is standing at 113 and families of the missing have been told by the police to "expect the worst". 

So far we have received help from Australia, Japan, Singapore, Britain and the USA as well as offers from Taiwan, Israel, Canada and China. The support from people all around the world has been amazing during this difficult time. Thank you for sending your love and prayers our way.

For those of you who would like to contribute financially there are a few links below. Have a nice weekend xx

Update: The death toll has now risen to 145 with 200 people still missing.
