‘Flooding in Sydney closed all land links and my patients were in pain,’ says Dr Faris Kirmani, who crossed the Hawkesbury River by boat with help from NSW SES to reach out to a stranded community in North Richmond.

Reaching the flood-stranded community of North Richmond in Sydney's northwest was far from easy on 23rd. March.

But NSW SES’s Hawkesbury Unit and Dr Faris Kirmani made it happen, only to provide relief to the local community which was cut off from the rest of Sydney.

Dr Kirmani is a GP who practices in Riverlands Dental Hawkesbury NSW.

He shares this unique experience with SBS Urdu.
