Cairns Floods 2023/24 Appeal


Responding to the recent flooding in Cairns

The Jewish community in Cairns has been impacted by major flood following ex-tropical cyclone Jasper.

They've now commenced the clean up and rebuilding their lives. More than 10 Jewish families have lost everything. 

Some members remain without power and are still dealing with the flood waters. 

We have begun the task of supporting the members of our community in need with temporary accommodation, but
we now urgently call on you to help provide the desperately needed funds to assist this community to get back
on its feet.

Many families are insured, but some are uninsured. Some families have young children, some are elderly and some are disabled. 

For those with insurance, they need help to meet the high cost of the excess payments needed to process claims.

Others need clothing, bedding, blankets, electronics, toys and other general household items.

There are a myriad of items needed to help people rebuild their lives. 

These are desperate times for members of one of Australia's most remote Jewish communities - please help them now.
