|Unfortunately, new momentum through climate change brings deadly consequences for people, plants, animals, wildlife and infrastructure.This project involves establishing a warehouse and office centre at Main Road, Hurstbridge VIC, Australia to receive donated building materials for distribution to citizens affected by the Victorian bushfires. The centre will service citizens-in-need and its functional model will develop through support for community rebuilding.|
The proposed site has been generously donated.
Many organisations are already serving the fire affected communities. Where possible, this project aims to create a collaborative model for efficient collection, management and distribution of rebuilding resources.
We invite potential donors with access to underutilised materials/equipment to contact Bill Penrose via email; firstname.lastname@example.org
The centre will engage community groups in employment, providing various services and logistics management. A skills trade segment where services such as hairdressing, earth-moving, plumbing, baby sitting, health services, child care/minding, yoga, dancing and various others are traded/bartered is on the horizon.
Experience gained will be used in developing a recovery and rehabilitation model which can be translated and modified as a framework to meet the individual and collective needs of any community that has suffered climate change and/or natural and unnatural disaster.
