Natural disasters are part of the character of Australia, with rarely a year going by where as a nation we are not challenged by them.
The Salvation Army has been privileged to meet many people in places all around this great nation who have been impacted. We acknowledge their courage, resilience and determination to not allow these events to define the future.
The Still Standing Mission
“Still Standing” is a film and resources which have been developed to provide you with information from experts who can assist you in the long term recovery from natural disasters.
These experts include other Australians who have suffered great loss, and recovered from previous natural disasters, as well as medical practitioners who specialise in disaster recovery. This website is dedicated and belongs to people who have suffered through natural disasters and offers resources to help those affected.
We have heard so many stories, met so many amazing people and have been privileged to stand beside many as they have fought back. As we considered what more The Salvation Army could do to support people into the future, we were inspired to produce the following resource that we believe will be of help to many.
The Salvation Army is grateful to the millions of Australians who entrusted us with resources to share with those who have been so significantly affected by these natural disasters.
We are particularly grateful to the well known Australian company who fully funded this project, but who has asked to remain anonymous.
