Southern Queensland has been hit by severe flooding recently and Brethren charity, the Rapid Relief Team (RRT) were humbled to be able to help with catering and clean up.
Local volunteers from RRT assisted with the recovery at Inglewood, in the Southern Downs region of Queensland.
The team served up hot meals and refreshments for emergency services workers and locals displaced by the flooding.
More than 800 people had to be relocated at the peak of the flooding.
RRT served 200 hot meals for dinner on their first night and 150 the next day for breakfast and lunch. They also deployed a bobcat to assist with clean-up efforts.
RRT supports hundreds of flood, fire and drought rescue efforts each year, and also assists the healthcare system through donating food boxes and other assistance where required.
The Plymouth Brethren Christian Church established RRT in 2013 to express its principles of care and compassion.
Globally, the Brethren charity has more than 14,500 volunteers and operates in Australia, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, France, the United States, Canada and Germany.
