The footage from the floods that ripped through extensive parts of NSW, especially the NSW Northers Rivers region, has been heartbreaking and devastating to watch. With record rainfalls and vast flash flooding, communities in these areas have in many ways been impacted. It will take years and millions of dollars for the families and businesses in these areas to recover.
Disaster Relief Australia was launched in 2016 and provided relief when disasters occur in Australia. They launched Operation Kelliher, a meaningful, long, sustained flood recovery operation that will directly impact the recovery efforts. They are deploying a veteran-led volunteer workforce to assist in regions throughout NSW.
