How you can help victims of the Christchurch mosque attacks

Shuls across New Zealand to close over Shabbat for 'first time in history'

"My brother Omar Nabi has lost his father in the Christchurch terror attack, money raised will aid the family and to help him return his father's body back to Afghanistan", they wrote on the page.

At least 49 people were killed and more were injured.

The largest of those pages is Givealittle's official "Christchurch Shooting Victims' Fund" which as of 7pm tonight had raised over $4 million from 56,000 plus donors.

"All funds raised are going to be distributed to the families by NZIIC - New Zealand Islamic Information Centre".

Chief Executive at Victim Support Kevin Tso says, "all donations received will be ringfenced to support the dozens of families who have been bereaved and many more injured by yesterday's horrific shootings".

Victims Support stressed on their Givealittle page that all the funds donated will go directly to "support and resources for people affected by the Christchurch shootings and their family members".

LaunchGood has so far raised more than $1m AUD.

All proceeds will help with the immediate, short-term needs of the grieving families.

"No amount of money will bring back their loved ones, but we do hope to lessen their burden in some way", they wrote on their page.

The non-profit Islamic trust is based in Auckland and is supporting the LaunchGood campaign.

The Community Security Trust has also urged places of worship to exercise extra caution over the coming hours. It is a very tragic situation in Christchurch.

"We appreciate the efforts of the givealittle team to restore the site overnight and this morning, however Victim Support would like to advise that a second appeals page has been set up on the fundraising platform Everyday Hero".

The page also shares the stories of "our martyrs" with a link to an Instagram page where victims have been added to "incredible muslims worldwide".

"This money is being ring-fenced and is NOT for Victim Support's regular operating costs", the Givealittle page stated.
