Help people in the Pacific threatened by measles outbreaks

The Team from New Zealand Red Cross

Right now in the Pacific there is a life-threatening measles outbreak, and children are most at risk.
Outbreaks have been declared in Fiji, Samoa and Tonga. Thousands of people have been affected, and many thousands more are at risk as health authorities and medical professionals race to prevent the spread and impact of this disease.
Red Cross volunteers are working closely with Ministries of Health to support both response and prevention activities. Hundreds of people have already visited the mobile vaccination site at Samoa Red Cross.

You can help too. Donate to the Pacific Disaster Fund now to support this emergency response.

That includes temporarily closing the Octagon, similar to the trial during the Ed Sheeran concerts in Easter 2018.
