Samaritan’s Purse deployed to Rappville in northern New South Wales in response to the devastating bushfires that ravaged south-eastern Queensland and northern New South Wales. One of our Disaster Relief Units was on the ground, equipped with chainsaws, tools and fire recovery kits. The kits contained personal protective equipment, a shovel, mattock, large and small crowbar, hammer, rake and sieve and were distributed to homeowners to help find salvageable items and clear properties.

There were 168 structures damaged or destroyed in the region, including 42 homes in Rappville. We partnered with churches and the local council, removing debris, helping with chainsaw work and general property clearing for affected families.

We served the Rappville community u003cspanu003e in Jesus’ Name.u003c/spanu003e
