Helping people is what we do. Your generosity makes that possible.
Several days of record breaking rain across the New South Wales coast has caused severe flooding, affecting 86,000 people. Two people have died, and tens of thousands have been forced to evacuate. Homes and livelihoods have been lost, and more than 1,041 people had to be rescued from floodwaters by NSW SES.
Communities have been completely cut off due to flood waters and landslides, and although weather conditions have eased there are still major flood warnings and evacuation orders in place for several areas across the State.
In the days and weeks ahead thousands of families will have to begin the long and difficult process of cleaning up, and communities will need long-term support to recover from this disaster.
Your donation will enable Australian Red Cross to provide humanitarian support to people and communities in New South Wales affected by the 2021 floods.
Based on ongoing needs assessment and amount raised, this support may include:
- disaster relief including practical and financial assistance
- supporting people and communities to recover and to build resilience to disasters
