As almost two days pass since the devastating Christchurch mosque massacres broke the hearts of many, people from all over the world continue to rally in support of the bereaved families and survivors who escaped the horrific attacks.

The largest of those pages is Givealittle's official "Christchurch Shooting Victims' Fund" which as of 7pm tonight had raised over $4 million from 56,000 plus donors.

An Official page created by the New Zealand Council of Victim Support Groups has raised more than $2.8 million by 8.05am today.

A further $1.7m has been raised through LaunchGood.

"Dozens of families have been bereaved and many more injured...they deserve our help and support!" the page says.

Last October, a crowdfunding campaign called "Muslims Unite for Pittsburgh Synagogue" raised more than $200,000 in four days for the Pittsburgh shooting victims.

Singh said that Pakistan's demand that Indian pilgrims should carry their passports defeats the goal of a special corridor. It is located in Pakistan's Narowal district across the river Ravi, about four kilometres from the worldwide border.

An update was posted on the Givealittle page to clarify the funds will be ringfenced to provide resources and support to those affected by Friday's events, and will not go towards Victim Support's regular operating costs. The money will be distributed by the New Zealand Islamic Information Centre (NZIIC) to help with the "immediate, short-term needs of the grieving families".

Donor Param Singh also donated $100 and wrote, "We stand together and this is our strength".

"This is to offer a simple help from the community around New Zealand to support the affected families", the Trust said in a statement.

"We appreciate the efforts of the givealittle team to restore the site overnight and this morning, however Victim Support would like to advise that a second appeals page has been set up on the fundraising platform Everyday Hero".

NZ charity Victim Support has set up an EverydayHero page to raise money for the victims. "Let's remain united as one nation!"

"My deepest sympathies to the Muslim brothers and sisters that lost their lives, and the families and communities that are hurting".
