From Friday 15 November, Countdown customers can donate to the Oxfam Super Typhoon Haiyan Appeal at any Countdown store across the country.
Donations can be made in specially marked donation boxes at the checkout, or you can make a donation during your supermarket shop.
All proceeds go to the Oxfam New Zealand Super Typhoon Haiyan Appeal.
Oxfam New Zealand spokesperson, Gwen Pearson, says: “Not only is this one of the worst natural disasters since the Indian Ocean tsunami, but it’s the poorest areas in the Philippines that have been affected.
“Oxfam is on the ground in three of the worst affected areas in the Philippines – Samar, Leyte and Northern Cebu. Our priority is to provide shelter, clean water and sanitation. This addresses the very real initial needs of survivors, but also helps prevent the spread of disease through poor sanitation. Oxfam will then spend several months supporting people to rebuild their lives and livelihoods.
“Donations from generous New Zealanders are a vital way we can bring this life-saving aid to the millions of people who have been affected, and support those families who have lost everything.” says Pearson.
There are 166 Countdown stores nationwide to assist this fundraising effort.
