MID NORTH COAST FLOODS
Disaster Relief Australia has launched a flood recovery operation dubbed Operation ELLIOT to the Port Macquarie area. The operation will bring vital flood recovery to a community still recovering from the Black Summer bushfires of 2019.
The operation will deploy for 8 weeks and is initially based in the North Haven area supporting local areas of North Haven, Dunbogan, Kendall and Kew.
How Disaster Relief Australia will respond to the NSW Floods
You may have seen our blue shirts around the community. We are here are ready to work!
Operation Elliot 27 March – 15th May
Operation Elliot will conclude on the 15th May. Our teams on the ground have been busy over the past weeks assisting members of the community impacted by the recent catastrophic floods.
Since our operation began on 27 March we have deployed 76 members, completed 4,066 hours of work, completed 41 work orders and saved the community over $210,273.
As a non-profit organisation the work we do would not be possible without the funding and support of our various partners. From Clubs NSW to Lions Australia, Mitsubishi Motors Australia Limited, Bunnings Warehouse Australia and Coates Hire as well as support from local councils and community groups, these partnerships are invaluable and appreciated not only by our organisation and our members but by the communities we serve.
Thank you to everyone who has assisted on Operation Elliot.
