Letters of Sympathy to Flood Victims
The Falkland Islands Government has sent letters to the leaders of Australia and Brazil following the devastating floods the two countries have undergone recently.
Floods in Australia will reportedly cost the country 30 billion Australian dollars to repair and Prime Minister Julia Gillard has hinted that a new government tax will be created to rebuild the areas affected. All Australians will have to pay the charge.
Meanwhile in Brazil the flash flooding and mudslides is one of the country’s worst natural disasters with the death toll now at over 700 people and fears of an epidemic are increasing.
The Falkland Islands Government has sent letters to Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard and Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff expressing the Islanders “deepest sympathy” with the people, following the recent tragedies.
