Challenge

The Northern Rivers region of NSW is experiencing some of the worst flooding it has ever seen and the community needs your assistance. Lismore is facing the highest floodwaters ever recorded there and for nearby cities and towns, it's already the worst it's been in decades. Many have been evacuated already, while others are stranded by flood waters awaiting assistance from the already overwhelmed State Emergency Service. Homes, vehicles and livestock have been lost.

Solution

Our Members and Conferences throughout the state will be mobilising in the areas of need and providing relief to those who need it most. Relief will include essentials like food, assistance with bills and unexpected expenses. Vinnies members will also be able to supply clothing and other vital items for families who have had to flee their homes. We are in regular contact with evacuation centres about how we are best able to help.

Long-Term Impact

Vinnies will continue to help those in need within these communities after the emergency has passed. Members will provide long-term emotional support as well as practical assistance to those whose homes have been damaged to replace furniture, bedding and appliances.
