Tens of thousands of homes and businesses are without power or have been damaged by floodwaters, according to the Australian Red Cross.
People and families have been evacuated, and don’t know when they will be able to return home.
Donations to the Qld and NSW Floods Appeal will help Red Cross to provide vital humanitarian support to the people and communities affected by the floods.

Based on ongoing needs assessment in Queensland and NSW and amount raised, that support may include:
- Enabling volunteers and staff to help with evacuation and relief centres and outreach service
- Supporting people and communities to recover and to build resilience to disasters
In the unlikely event that the funds raised exceed the amount required to meet the emergency needs of people in affected areas, or if there are circumstances beyond Red Cross’ control, excess funds will be directed to Red Cross’ broader disaster response and recovery work in Australia.
