As the massive scale of devastation and loss hits home, our hearts go out to those affected by the Feb 22 M6.3 earthquake.
In a country of our size, the degree to which we are all connected becomes so evident in a tragedy like this.
As the task of cleaning up and starting again continues, it is heart warming to see the level of support pouring in from around the country and overseas.
Everything has changed for Christchurch, and for New Zealand. But the need to carry on and create a strong and worthwhile future remains.
Like everyone, the Ecofind team will be looking in the days ahead to see what else we can do in the longer term to contribute to the recovery and rebuilding in Christchurch.
