Urgent Message to Goodna Flood Victims: Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu Chi Foundation to help Goodna flood victims tomorrow
Goodna flood victims will be able to access immediate cash grants of $500 and free gift packs tomorrow (Saturday).
The Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu Chi Foundation comprising 5 million members worldwide will be at the Redbank Plains State High School from 3.30pm to help local families affected by the recent flood.
Last week, over 100 families benefited from the Buddhist Foundation's generosity after members walked the streets of Goodna door-knocking homes in their stylish white and blue uniforms spreading the word of their generosity.

The assistance is available to occupiers of homes which suffered serious flood damage.
The Buddhist Foundation's Patric Lu is co-ordinating the relief effort and is hopeful of targeting all flood victims.
Goodna-based Councillor Paul Tully urged all affected residents to take advantage of the generous support being offered.
"It was heartening last weekend to see so many Goodna families availing themselves of this assistance to get them through these traumatic times.
"If you know anyone affected by the flood in the local area, please let them know of the generous support being offered by the Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu Chi Foundation."
