THE State Government’s decision to allocate $10 million in disaster relief funding to the St Vincent de Paul Society for distribution to people still struggling to recover from this year’s floods and cyclone is good news (Page 1).
Even more heartening are the efforts of the Catholics of Malaita in the Solomon Islands and Catholic schools in Brisbane archdiocese, such as Carmel College (page 7).
Their generous efforts send a clear message to the disaster victims that they are not forgotten.
