Battered by Cyclonic Winds and Torrents.....

Hot on the heels of fires in Tasmania and Victoria, Queensland was visited by a devastating cyclone with destructive winds and an unprecedented volume of rain.   While areas up and down Queensland's coast and northern NSW received its battering force, Bundaberg captured the main media attention.

Bundaberg is another area dear to the hearts of MSS, especially those who lived and worked in that region.   Our hearts go out to the people who lost their homes, stock, crops and infrastructure.   We are also mindful of those who have supported the John Wallis Foundation and the fledgling John Wallis Foundation Regional Group.  Rebuilding from flood damage is a long-term task, needing to address the physical, emotional, spiritual and social consequences of the trauma.   We hope that the John Wallis Foundation can play some small part here.
