New Zealand country report

The delegate of SLIANZ mentions that the statistics of New Zealand were covered yesterday in the presentation of Rachel McKee.

Christchurch has suffered two major earthquakes and the impact on the deaf and the interpreting community has been enormous. Not until two days after the earthquake we could offer the interpreting services nationally. We had the good example from Australian floods and the provision of interpreters there. This has helped us to arrange the services.
