“The best thing is being together. Having the whole groups of families together. In Borroloola there are four clan groups. Now we are all together, and having constant meetings and working things out. I want to say that Red Cross is doing a very, very great job. We are on board with Red Cross. They’ve been a great help, sitting down and listening to us, planning what to do with us.” - Borroloola Elder Joyce Dirdi.
Red Cross managed three evacuation centres in Darwin and Katherine where 1,000 people bedded down as part of a massive response which saw thousands of people evacuated from their remote communities in the path of Cyclone Trevor, 2019.
