Queesland Floods Appeal

The catastrophic floods in Queensland are having devastating effect with homes, lives, livestock and business all destroyed. The full implication of this natural disaster will take months to calculate but financially it is likely to be on a par with the destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina.

For the latest up to date reports

You can make a donation at Flood Relief Appeal .

The Australasian Podiatry Council (APodC) have recently announced a flood relief appeal for podiatry practices hit by the Queensland and Northern New South Wales floods. President, Andrew Schox launched the Flood Relief Appeal with a $65000 donation from APod C .

On behalf of members across Australia, the APodC would like to offer as much support as it can to podiatrists, member and non-member alike, who are experiencing professional service difficulty due to the floods. We anticipate that those affected may need equipment, medication and other supplies to support practice needs.

Anyone who would like to donate can do so using the following details:

Bank: ANZ Ltd

Account name: Australasian Podiatry Council

Account number: 1018-50565

BSB number: 013-374

Donations can also be made by credit card via the APodC website

Donated funds will go towards helping podiatrists maintain their practices and/or clean up and reopen. Any remaining funds will be donated to the Queensland Flood Appeal.

Podiatrists affected by the floods should, in the first instance, explain their needs to the APodC Member Resources Officer – Alae Taule’alo on 0394163111 / The relevant member association will be contacted following receipt of details.
