Help make a difference to communities affected by QLD and NSW floods.
Severe storms and rainfall across QLD and NSW have resulted in flooding in both states. People, families and animals have been evacuated and the death toll continues to rise.
Tens of thousands of homes and businesses are without power or have been damaged by floodwaters. The poor weather conditions have disrupted recovery and clean-up efforts and thousands of houses remain inhabitable and inaccessible. There are also increased health risks associated with contaminated waters.
The Amma Australia community has been closely watching and praying for everyone affected by this devastating situation.
We also take this opportunity to acknowledge those already serving in the flood relief efforts, including the many volunteers who have so selflessly offered their services.
To join in relief efforts and support those most impacted, Amma Australia (MA Centre [Aust] Foundation and Amrita Australia Ltd), has launched the Flood Appeal for QLD & NSW.
Donations to the Flood Appeal will help our volunteers on the ground provide humanitarian support to communities affected.
Amma Australia volunteers are working with other local charities and groups to identify what is most needed during this emergency stage and through to recovery stage.
Through your generous donations, our relief efforts will initially focus on:
- Cooking & distributing nourishing food for those sheltering in evacuation centres;
- Providing essential non-perishable food and personal and household items to those in need;
- Sourcing temporary shelter supplies like tents and sleeping bags for homeless people and those rendered homeless because of the floods.
We will look to extend our relief efforts as we identify additional areas of need.
If you would like to help make a difference to the lives of those suffering from the floods you can donate securely online.
Donations can be made through Amrita Australia Limited. All donations of $2 and over are tax deductible.
We sincerely appreciate your generous support!
