The Accessible Survival Kit Initiative is a partnership between Founder, Amanda Wallis and The Addington Neighbourhood Association Inc.
The Initiative began in July 2016 with the mission to ‘Provide residents of all incomes with an accessible option and support to assemble an emergency survival kit in case of a personal, local or national disaster.’
Subscribe to the free newsletter for great ideas, money saving tips and motivation to assemble and maintain a household survival kit in case of a fire, flooding, earthquakes, storms and other personal, local or national disasters.
HOW IT WORKS…
Register online and make regular payments of a minimum NZD$1 per week to begin paying for your survival kit. These payments are made to Addington Neighbourhood Association Inc New Zealand bank account.
Items paid in full are dispatched on a monthly basis. It’s like a special survival kit savings account. You can watch your survival kit grow and use items you have paid for in the event of an emergency or disaster to care for yourself and your household.
Each kit includes recommended by getthru.govt.nz, a first aid kit, dust masks, torch and radio, hand sanitizer, bucket, large garbage bags, gas stove, gas canisters, can opener and cooking pot.
Where did this idea come from? Founder, Amanda Wallis has experienced poverty and homelessness and knows how hard it is to put a little money aside each week however a little support goes a long so providing a service that encourages independence and safety especially after the Christchurch earthquakes while bridging the gap between incomes was a must.
