FLOOD DISASTER RELIEF

Brisbane and Northern Rivers Flood Disaster Relief
The flooding emergency continues in Queensland and NSW, with the risk of more wet weather in the days ahead. In Brisbane, at least eight people have lost their lives, and over 15,000 properties are inundated after the city received its annual rainfall in two days. In Lismore, hundreds of people have been rescued from rapidly rising floodwaters, and thousands have been forced to leave their homes as the township manages the worst flood in history.
When the waters start to recede, people will return to sodden, jumbled, mud-covered homes and businesses. They will have the terrible task of sorting through their possessions to see if anything is salvageable.
Our thoughts are with those staff in the Brisbane office facing the flood first-hand. Also, our students spread right through South-East Queensland and Northern New South Wales, who would have been hoping to start a new semester fresh and prepared.
But we can help!
The Australian Red Cross has launched an appeal for both states.
