In just a few weeks, over 590 volunteers have deployed, completing 411 jobs over 16,520 hours. That represents $773K community costs saved! 378 of the volunteers were Australians answering the call to serve their community. Led in the field by DRA volunteers, our newest volunteers got dirty and dug deep to bring hands-on help where it was needed most.
Disaster Relief Australia (DRA) is underway with a large disaster relief operation in response to the catastrophic flooding of Queensland and New South Wales. DRA members and volunteers initially worked alongside locals from the Moreton Bay region in QLD and have since set up a forward operating base in Coraki, NSW just a short drive from Lismore.
We’re calling on veterans, emergency responders and the general public to join us in our efforts to help flood affected communities. Anyone able to put in a hard days work is welcome to join.
