Who will you race for?
James is a Red Cross Recovery Officer, currently working in communities to support recovery from the floods in northern New South Wales, from Ballina, down the coastal part of the Richmond Valley, Woodburn, New Italy and Coraki.
On the surface, it’s an overwhelmingly huge job. But thanks to the strength of the communities, and the willingness of so many to help, flood-impacted places across Queensland and New South Wales are on the road to recovery.
“The task at hand seems absolutely mammoth. But when you get in there and get it done, [you get so much help]. There were just people who would come from everywhere, all over the east coast to come and [support] communities like us.”
You can help to empower communities who have experienced extreme weather events to rebuild their lives and remain strong in the face of adversity. Sign up to The Human Race today.
