The current flooding in the Australian state of Queensland demonstrates just how destructive Mother Nature can be, with three quarters of the state being declared a disaster zone. To date the floods have taken the lives of at least 19 people, with more feared to be confirmed. Countless lives have been destroyed due to their homes being destroyed by the flooding. But there is a way you can help.
Australian Red Cross Australia has had several hundred staff and volunteers on the ground assisting with the response since the first evacuation centre opened on the 27th December 2010. It is also working in coordination with emergency response agencies to assist people through the recovery process at recovery centres. If you would like to make a donation please visit the special page set up on Queensland Government's website.
If your booking has been affected by the floods, or you have enquiry about your booking, you can email our customer service department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
