Flooding caused by rainfall and overflowing rivers in southern Brazil has resulted in an unprecedented level of devastation, claiming many lives and leaving hundreds of people still missing. It is the worst natural disaster in the history of the state, perhaps, one of the biggest in the history of Brazil.

The rainfall continues to leave the city without water and in darkness. Thousands of people have lost their homes, food, and basic resources for living.

Now, those affected are seeking a safe haven for their families. Animals have also been severely affected, many losing their lives and thousands still stranded on the rooftops of houses, awaiting rescue without food and water.

Brazil needs our help, donations, and prayers.

Head to the Jamison Trash & Treasure Markets on 19 and 26 May to purchase from their stall selling clothes, accessories and delicious Brazilian food. All funds will go towards flood victims.
