Support the flood appeals for Queensland

Northern and western Queensland have been absolutely devastated after the floods in early February 2019.

In Townsville:

  • A year’s worth of rain fell in just 8 days
  • 1,000 homes in Townsville have been severely damaged
  • 20,000 homes have been affected
  • 250 homes are unliveable
  • The damage bill is still being calculated

Out west:

  • Over five years of drought saw farmers on the brink
  • Floods for many was not the saviour but yet another challenge
  • Rail lines and roads were ripped apart
  • Flood waters created rivers kilometres wide
  • Hundreds of thousands of cattle have been lost
  • Losses and damage is estimated at over $500,000,000

Many in each community have been battered and bruised, but we hope not yet beaten.

Now is the time for us to stand together and reach out and help where we each can.

Clarity is supporting four charities and is urging our community of staff, patients, suppliers, friends and family to join in our support.

Clarity has donated $500 to each of the four following charities and urges you, if you are able, to support those struggling through this disaster. Click on the links below to donate to your chosen cause.
