Premier's Disaster Relief Appeal

January 2011 floods and Cyclone Yasi

When a natural disaster occurs, the Premier may launch an appeal to help those affected.

In the wake of the January 2011 floods and Cyclone Yasi, the Premier's Disaster Relief Appeal collected and distributed funds to help those in devastated communities.

More than $267 million was raised.
