At Real Innovation Group, we believe that recognising your employees’ hard work and efforts within and outside the company is essential. Today, we recognise our fantastic employee Matthew Condy for his hard volunteer efforts with Disaster Relief Australia.
Real Innovation Group understands the importance of volunteer work and its positive impact on our loyal communities. Matthew has demonstrated his dedication to making a difference by volunteering his time and resources to help those affected by disasters.
Disaster Relief Australia & Operation Mactier
Disaster Relief Australia is an organisation that provides disaster response to those affected by natural disasters and aims to provide the greatest service and impact to the affected communities.
In October of last year, after experiencing the wettest August since 2010 and higher-than-average rainfall in September, Victoria experienced mass flooding across the state. Rural towns like Rochester were asked to evacuate, with major water catchments reaching capacity. These devastating floods left numerous communities across Victoria, both metropolitan and regional, suffering extensive flood damage.
Working with Emergency Management Victoria, Disaster Relief Australia supported Operation Mactier by managing spontaneous volunteers and assisting residents affected by extensive flood damage.
Our superstar, Matthew, volunteered as part of this operation and supported Disaster Relief Australia’s relief effort by assisting with debris removal, possession recovery and providing residents with emotional support. This is just one of the incredible volunteer projects Matthew has been a part of.
Other Volunteer Efforts
Previously Matthew has volunteered with BlazeAid on several occasions and was part of the volunteer efforts for the Bunyip fires in 2019 & the Black Summer bushfire efforts in the summer of 2020. While volunteering with BlazeAid in Wingham NSW, he recalls every person wishing for rain in the lead-up to Christmas that year, with kids writing letters to Santa asking for rain and local shops displaying children’s drawings asking for rain and remarkably, it raining on Christmas day.
In 2021, Matthew also volunteered with the Help the Hill relief efforts after severe storms devastated homes in the Dandenong Ranges in Melbourne’s outer east. And if that wasn’t amazing enough for you, from time to time, Matthew helps create maps for humanitarian missions through Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team, where he is an intermediate mapper. He has created maps for the likes of The Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders and United Nations in countries such as Afghanistan, Libya, Somalia, Lebanon, Uganda and Bangladesh,
Real Innovation Group proudly recognises Matthew Condy’s hard volunteer efforts, especially his recent efforts with Disaster Relief Australia. Our company values community service and encourages its employees to take part in volunteer efforts.
