Sometimes it takes a disaster to realise how much we care about our fellow New Zealanders. Following the February 22nd earthquake there has been many stories of compassion, goodwill and ordinary New Zealanders coming together to lend a hand.
The past few weeks have seen farmers from all over New Zealand band together to help provide relief to the victims of the Canterbury Earthquake, by aiding with the clean-up and lending a caring ear. That relief is now set to come from even further afield.
New Zealand Young Farmer Members have been out on the streets of Christchurch with the “Farmy Army” over the past week, and this weekend NZYF’s commitment to helping the city recover from the devastating February 22nd Earthquake steps up another gear.
