What are the Red Cross doing to help Christchurch Earthquake victims?

This story from the Red Cross web site really struck a chord with me last night. It drove home how valuable any donation, no matter how small, is.

“On Sunday, they discovered a 19-year-old woman and her toddler son living in their car in their driveway. They couldn’t stay in their house, as it was flooded with silt and badly damaged. They did not even have enough petrol to get to a petrol station. The Red Cross filled their car up with petrol so they could drive to a welfare centre, where they are now being looked after”
