As the waters slowly recede, the full indiscriminate devastation begins to reveal itself.
People’s family … homes … livelihoods … lost.
Driving through some of the worst flood affected areas, you begin to get a glimpse of the enormity of this state wide disaster. Many have likened it to a war zone. Heavy army vehicles are moving into suburban streets armed with the duty of removing the debris of people’s lives.
Thousands upon thousands of volunteers have formed their own army. Moving into some of the worst areas, cleaning out people’s houses. Mostly strangers to those who they help, but strengthening everyone’s resolve…together we can overcome this.
Queenslanders are amazingly resilient people. Despite all that has been endured, many can still raise a smile and extend a hand.
Our recovery has only just begun. A long journey stretches out before us. Together we will overcome this.
Please consider extending your hand to those in greatest need…Premier's Flood Relief Appeal
