Natural disasters are becoming more frequent, and more costly.
Rural, regional and remote communities often bear the brunt of natural disasters, and have the least resources to support their recovery, and preparedness. Having supported these communities to recover from disasters for many years, FRRR knows how sudden and devastating they can be - and that recovery can take years. We also know that being prepared for disasters is critical as they become more frequent and severe.
FRRR’s Disaster Recovery & Resilience Fund ensures that there is support available for affected communities, when they need it. Donations to our fund help with things like enhancing community halls that are used for emergency shelter, implementing UHF radio systems, so people can stay in touch during an emergency or community-level disaster planning, as well as the needs that often emerge 12-18 months after a disaster event – such as support for fatigued volunteer leaders, repairing vital community infrastructure or ensuring psychological support is available. We can also help communities rebuild their local economy.
FRRR can accept donations of any size and issue tax deductible receipts for donations over $2.
Thank you - your support will enable FRRR to direct resources where they are needed, when they are needed.
