Tropical Storm Oswald Relief

Tropical Cyclone Oswald Relief

- by Hand of Hope 1 MIN READ

In 2013, tropical cyclone Oswald formed in the far north coast of Queensland, Australia, and set off on a course of destruction and flooding. The storm traversed the entire eastern seaboard, finally turning out to sea after passing through Sydney, wreaking havoc along its trail. 

The city of Bundaberg, Australia, north of Brisbane, experienced 7 tornados as well as major cyclonic damage. The devastation was far reaching. Thousands of Bundaberg residents were displaced from their homes. Two-thousand homes were affected.

Joyce Meyer Ministries partnered with Citipointe Church and Red Frogs, an outreach of Citipointe, to go into the affected areas. We provided assistance in the clean up process as well as provided food to the volunteers. We provided water blasters, boots, cleaning equipment and financial support to Red Frogs who had a team of volunteers working in the area with the local church. 

It was truly an honor to be a part of a team going into all parts of the world ministering to people’s practical and spiritual needs.

Thanks to our partners and friends who provide the support that enables us to help people who are experiencing hardships following this natural disaster.
