One year on following the worst flood on record, the small town of Rochester, Victoria, is still reeling to recover. Hundreds of families are still unable to return to their homes, awaiting repairs or insurance payouts to repair flood damage. The mental and emotional strain of displacement has left many families with little hope.

Samaritan’s Purse Australian Disaster Relief teams have returned to Rochester to help rebuild the community. Working through partnerships with the council and local churches. We have provided teams of tradies and other volunteers to help lend a hand once again, this time with the objective of getting people back into their homes.

We ask that you prayerfully consider supporting us to serve the community of Rochester in Jesus’ Name. We are on the ground in Rochester from November 13 – December 13.
