In March 2022, Human Appeal Australia (HAA) launched a fundraising campaign to help the communities affected by the floods in Australia.
The 2022 Eastern Australia floods were recorded as one of the nation’s worst flood disasters that occurred in South East Queensland and parts of coastal New South Wales. The heavy rains forced thousands to flee their homes, creating a mass disaster for small towns in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales. Lives were lost and thousands of people were displaced living in temporary accommodation and tents.
HAA in partnership with the Good360, Resilient Lismore and Mullumbimby & District Neighbourhood Centre (MDNC) delivered and distributed aid to the local community in Lismore and Mullumbimby.
On Friday 29 of July 2022 as part of the relief response, the Human Appeal teams in NSW and QLD including Director Bashar Al-Jamal, Director of Projects Issam Chaouk and Head of Community Care Amin El-Bureeny, HAA QLD Manager Imam Akram Buksh along with Jihad Dib, MP Member for Lakemba, Shadow Minister for Emergency Services, Energy and Climate Change and Clr Bilal El-Hayek, Deputy Mayor City of Canterbury Bankstown delivered donations to Resilient Lismore in Lismore then distributed relief items including white goods, care packs and essentials vouchers to the flood affected families at Mullumbimby.
The community open day event was held at the Ex-Servicemen Mullumbimby Club helping those in need whilst bringing our communities together and fostering resilience. The event was attended by a wide variety of people including those affected by flood, local service providers and the general public.
Human Appeal with the help of our generous community has been able to present the $5000 donation cheque to Resilient Lismore and to distribute white goods and essentials distributed to the flood affected families through the Mullumbimby & District Neighbourhood Centre.
‘It’s so inspiring to see the parts of the wider community support each other in times of need. Even though they’ve never met and I am so proud of their efforts. The mantra for both charity groups (Human Appeal and Good360) On the road to goodness” and “Circle of goodness” was in full evidence today.…always remember, there’s lots of good in the world and when humanity stands with one another, it’s an example of the best of us ‘- said Jihad Dib, MP
This great initiative will assist Resilient Lismore to pursue their relief efforts in Lismore and have assisted around 30 families affected by the floods in Mullumbimby
Human Appeal Australia is always with you on the road to goodness.
