It has been a challenging year, but we’ve been so proud to see the hard work and adaptability our customers and many businesses across the region have shown. Every business has been affected by Covid-19 in some way, and every business has a story. Here at Westpac our focus has been supporting our customers, we’re working incredibly hard to get Kiwis through this and have already provided loan repayment relief for more than 20,000 personal and home loan customers, and billions of dollars in new and restructured lending to businesses.  We’ve also donated an extra $1m to support New Zealand’s rescue helicopters to help address a fundraising shortfall.​
