In March, Northwest Queensland was devastated by floods, with residents in Bourke Shire and Boulia Shire bearing the brunt of the deluge.
At the time many were evacuated to Mt Isa and Normanton, hundreds of kilometres away, where they stayed until waters could recede.
In the immediate aftermath of the natural disaster, we worked closely with our partner GIVIT to understand the level of need on the ground and how we could best respond.
On behalf of the Freemasons of Queensland $15,000 was donated. Members donated a further $1,500. 100% of these funds were used by GIVIT to help purchase much needed medication, food, clothing and bed linen for residents who had arrived with a small carry bag and just the clothes on their backs. GIVIT’s coordinated approach means people get exactly what they need.
