Gippsland residents have been hit hard over recent years. Below average rainfalls, the Black Summer Bushfires of 2019-20 summer, the COVID-19 pandemic and most recently catastrophic flooding. The floods caused mass evacuations, downed trees, and collapsed power lines, all greatly impacting on the freedom of movement, restriction of communication and generally hampering the recovery effort. Disaster Relief Australia can usually deploy a nationwide volunteer workforce to aid disaster impacted Australian communities. The continuing Covid restrictions mean only DRA volunteers within the Melbourne region (outside of Melbourne Metro) are able to help with this latest disaster. Melbourne Disaster Relief Team Manager Kyran Byrne is eager to get his team out this weekend for service project Vic Assist to bring help and hope where it’s needed most. “As a veteran-led volunteer organisation, it is a great honour to help The Path of Horse”. The Trentham based charity provides equine therapy to vets, emergency services personnel and their families. DRA will clear felled trees and debris which are currently blocking transport and vehicle access routes.
Disaster Relief Australia (DRA), conducted a flood recovery operation in the area of the Port Macquarie – Hastings and Mid Coast Council areas named Operation Elliot, commencing on 10 April 2021.
Operation Woods was Disaster Relief Australia’s (DRA) first major operation in Western Australia, incorporating the launch of our Perth Disaster Relief Team. DRA collaboration with the Minderoo Foundation’s Fire and Flood Resilience initiative, partnering to rapidly deploy volunteers into the region to help with recovery efforts for the Perth Hills Bushfire.
