Chevron Australia donates $1m to Kimberley flood relief

Chevron Australia has donated $1 million to emergency flood relief and recovery efforts in Western Australia’s Kimberley region, following severe flooding caused by ex-Tropical Cyclone Ellie earlier this month.

The company has also pledged to match employee donations dollar-for-dollar with all money raised supporting communities in the region who have experienced destruction and significant property damage.

Chevron Australia’s Acting Managing Director Kory Judd, said, that Chevron Australia is committed to supporting Australian communities, particularly in times of need.

“We have all seen the devastation that has occurred in the Kimberley from the flooding, and our thoughts are with the community members who have been impacted, especially the regional, remote, and indigenous communities who have been severely affected or become isolated.

“On behalf of the company and our workforce, I would also like to send my gratitude to the community members and emergency workers who have courageously battled treacherous conditions to protect lives and property.

“We hope our contribution can aid in the provision of immediate emergency relief as well as support what is expected to be a significant recovery for the region as communities seek to rebuild and reconnect with country.”
