We have never seen a flood as bad and locals say the waters rose even higher than expected for the infamous '100 year flood'. The water moved extremely fast and there was very little we were able to save in time.
My parents did not hold insurance coverage for the house so they will be reliant on grants and donations as many of their belongings have been destroyed or washed away; including several vehicles, farm equipment, building tools, furniture, family heirlooms, documents and family photos, electronic equipment, farm equipment, gardens, they have also sadly lost many animals and the house itself has incurred a lot of damage.
Both Tony & Krysia run small businesses, Tony is an arborist and Krysia is a massage therapist.
Tony's main tools of trade are his chainsaws which have (all but one) been destroyed by the flood - more than $10k worth of equipment, and we are still waiting to hear whether his truck and mulcher have survived.
By supporting Tony with a donation we can get to work replacing his chainsaws and other equipment needed to run his business, so he can quickly get back out there and keep earning income so we can rebuild our family home.
We truly appreciate your support.
