We provide care and
supplies to survivors 
of domestic violence. 

10,270 packs provided to survivors so far 

Over 3600 packs in 2020

A little piece of hope.

The feeling of receiving something new of your own, when you’ve left everything behind. A storybook to read to your children when you’re putting them to bed in a strange place. A toothbrush to help make you feel a little bit normal.

A message of understanding, hope and love. It’s these seemingly simple things which can make the world of difference.

 

I Got Your Back Pack provides emergency care packs to New Zealanders who have left a domestic violence situation and are going through refuges, often without the chance or

ability to pack and bring their belongings.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

It was the one year anniversary a couple of days ago since I found myself, pregnant and with my eldest son in a refuge with nothing but a broken everything. It was the absolute worst time of my life…. but the feeling I got when I saw the bag on what became my bed for more nights than I care to think of, I simply cannot describe. 

 

It was exactly what I needed at a time I had no idea where to even begin to think of what I would possibly need. 

 

I saw it and I cried, finally, it gave me hope in an odd way, I still have the bag and the note that was attached.

Thank you to our wonderful supporters
