Operation Water Security delivering NOW and where it is needed

Operation Water Security, first delivery of IBC water containers have arrived in Eurobodalla and the Bega Valley. Earlier this week, Convoy Missions Australia put the call out for assistance with providing the community with portable water solutions for families and community members who have had water tanks damaged during the fires.

On Saturday 8th Feb the first load of donations arrived.

Hearing the story from Sydney, Joe O Donovan, Carl Hinton and Rob Bird from Urban Impact in Brookvale, Sydney gathered as many 1000L IBC portable water tanks as they could fit and headed south. Joe O Donovan worked directly with Cobargo Bushfire Relief Centre and Carl worked with South Coast Donations Logistics Team to get to those who need it most.

Mathew Hatcher of the South Coast Donation Logistics Team said “This is a fantastic start, but we know there is still a huge need within our community

"If you know someone who needs assistance, please go to: www.socodolo.com we will do our best to assist you. We are also putting together a list to ensure future missions

Operation Water Storage says "We can't sit and do nothing whilst families and children are struggling to even have enough drinking water.  

"Plastic water tanks melted, corrugated iron tanks blistered, they no longer can store water effectively. Local water sources are struggling because the demand is so high.

"No amount of planning could have predicted this. They need rapid solutions and they need them NOW.

"Every cent of money raised from the Operation Water Storage Crowdraiser will be used specifically to purchase water and water storage items. No donation is too small, lots of littles make a lot. And every donation will help make a difference NOW when needed !! All donations over $2 are tax deductible."
