Crohn´s and Colitis New Zealand is joining the #worldibdday2018 campaign. So far we have confirmations that the Canterbury Museum, Christchurch Cathedral and the Fanfare Sculpture in Christchurch will be lit in purple on 19 May. Christchurch Cathedral is very symbolic for us as it is a ‘rallying call’ for the survivors and those still affected by the earthquakes.
There will also be IBD information stands on that day in various shopping malls.
Christchurch was destroyed during the earthquake with haunting social media images of it collapsing in real time.
