Northern Rivers Devastating floods and the heartening Community Response Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond

    • Health & Fitness

Hi out there to our listeners, its Annalee. It is Tuesday, 8th of March in 2022. We are bringing you a special bulletin on the catastrophic flooding in Northern NSW, Australia. In the early hours of Monday 27th February, a little over a week ago, heavy rains causing what was already severe flooding, took a fast turn and created what has been deemed by some scientists as a ‘rain bomb’. The scenes across Northern NSW have been nothing short of harrowing and the community response as a result a powerful reminder of immense good that is available within us all. I'm catching up with PBB’s Oni Blecher who’s on the ground in Mullumbimby, one of the region’s badly hit towns. We address the current needs in the community, what our organisation is doing to support families and lessons for the wider community.
