Muslim Aid Monitoring Disaster in New Zealand

At least 65 people have died after a 6.3-magnitude earthquake hit Christchurch, New Zealand on February 22 at 1251 local time (2351 GMT). As initial rescue operations are getting off the ground, there is a very real possibility that the death toll may rise with hundreds still feared trapped under the rubble.

We are assessing the situation on the ground through our partners and are also in touch with New Zealand High Commission in London, to ascertain what assistance the people of New Zealand may need following the earthquake.
