Australian Red Cross Has Stopped Taking New Emergency Cash Relief Flood Grant Applications
By Dave Oneegs Aussie Chat
Meanwhile the Red Cross has apparently distributed all the funds that were raised?
I’m definitely not saying it hasn’t happened,
I’m just saying I haven’t met anyone yet who received any help and they have apparently distributed approximately 40,000 grants,
which is a lot!
It’s my understanding they were offering $500 to those affected by the northern rivers floods.
$500 dollars would feed a family for about a week.
I guess it’s better than absolutely nothing but AHH was doing 10 x that amount and was really making a huge impact in those family’s lives…
before the account was frozen.
If you are in the northern rivers and received help from the Red Cross or know any friends and family who did,
please share below.
I wonder why they are not reaching into the “rainy day” purse that was saved after the fires for the “next disaster.”
