Australian Military Bank kicks off campaign to support veterans displaced by floods

Australian Military Bank has launched a campaign supporting veterans that have been displaced by the floods. AMB is kicking off the campaign with an initial $20,000 to ‘Wounded Heroes’, the valuable support program that provides accommodation and other assistance in instances where veterans and their families have been displaced. Further to this, AMB will match donations made by Bank staff to this cause over March and April.

Australian Military Bank CEO, Darlene Mattiske-Wood, said “We understand that many veterans were already doing it tough, so we knew it was vital to support those that have been displaced by the floods.”

“Over 5% of ex-service men and women are expected to experience homelessness1 - around five times the civilian average. Floods create an additional burden on those that may already be struggling.”

Wounded Heroes support Veterans and their families in need in a number of ways, including providing food and temporary housing. The current flood crisis is proving yet another challenge that requires critical support.

Wounded Heroes President, Martin Shaw, said “We have seen elevated requests for assistance because of the floods, we’ll be able to use these funds to house over 30 veterans currently without a place to stay.”

You can show your support via the link below. 

If you are currently serving, a veteran or family member and in need of emergency assistance, you can contact Wounded Heroes on their crisis line at 1300 532 112.

Any Australian Military Bank members that are impacted by the floods are encouraged to contact AMB to see how we may assist you on 1800 855 810. For more information, please see our post here.
