The floods that hit the Northern Territory in January were a devastating blow for workers at the Katherine Regional Language Centre, Diwurruwurru-Jaru. With water racing through the centre at ceiling height, very little could be salvaged of computer and office equipment, library resources and significant amounts of research data.

Now operating out of a replacement demountable building, staff are still uncertain over the availability of funds to replace the property lost.

The Katherine team hope they'll eventually get round to thanking everyone who's been in touch to give their support, with donations of furniture and equipment and messages of encouragement. A huge task is ahead in replacing the library material, and here other centres have begun helping by sending duplicate copies of printed material from their own libraries and offices.

If you'd like to offer help, please contact the centre at
