Manildra Digs Deep for Australian Red Cross Flood Appeal
Manildra Group was proud to support Australian Red Cross and their coordinators for the disaster appeal and recovery process, across Queensland and New South Wales communities, impacted by destructive flooding in early 2022.
Manildra Group donated $100,000 to Australian Red Cross, helping hundreds of flood-affected communities in the immediate response, and through the recovery process, delivering positive economic, social, and long-term impacts to those in need.
Australian Red Cross Partnerships Belle Gallop said Manildra Group’s generous donation enabled the charity to be on-the-ground during a crisis like the recent devastating floods, every step of the way.
“It helped to provide services to those in need, from assisting with evacuations, managing relief centres and outreach services, delivering psychosocial support, providing bereavement grants and immediate cash assistance,” said Ms Gallop.
The donation additionally supported resilience projects to help at-risk communities be better prepared for future disasters.
In early February 2022, intense rainfall, and storms ravaged communities, damaging homes, and destroying belongings. More than one million Australians were impacted, with thousands evacuated and the region facing years of rebuilding.
Ms Gallop told The Cultivator that support from businesses like Manildra Group are integral in providing comfort and care, to communities whilst alleviating pain and hardship.
Manildra Group Director Caroline Honan said it was rewarding to support the Australian Red Cross, a charity that works side by side with Australians through crises.
“The scale of devastation and destruction during the floods was immense, and it was heart-warming to support the Australian Red Cross to deliver vital services to those who need it most,” she said.
Ms Honan extended Manildra Group’s support and gratitude to the emergency services, partners and volunteers who were on the ground working day and night.
With a mission to reduce and prevent human suffering, Australian Red Cross is part of the world’s largest humanitarian movement, operating in over 191 countries with 17 million volunteers globally.
