The very recent floods on Gurindji Country have devastated our Daguragu and Kalkaringi communities. The impacts of this major disaster will be felt by our people - our families, our elders, our kids, everyone - for many months, if not years to come.
With the evacuation of 700 people, there are many immediate and urgent needs to attend to. Then, when the water recedes, the immensely heartbreaking work of cleaning up and rebuilding will begin.
Today, we’re asking our friends, families and supporters to get behind the Gurindji people and help us with this emergency.
Our aim is to raise $700,000 (that’s $1,000 per person approximately) to provide immediate care and ongoing resources as they’re needed.
All donations will go through the Gurindji Aboriginal Corporation, a registered charity, and will be used to DIRECTLY support flood-impacted community members and families.
The Gurindji Aboriginal Corporation, through its Board of Directors & Executive team, will ensure that donations are distributed according to requirements and the wishes of the people in need. Thank you for your generous contributions. The Gurindji people are legendary for their resilience in the face of serious challenges. It’s with your support that we will get through this.
We’ll keep you in the loop with festival updates.
