A HEARTWARMING and powerful video donated to the Lismore Chamber of Commerce and Industry received rousing applause when launched at the Lismore Business Flood Forum on Thursday.

The song donated was by Michael Benhayon of GM Records, who wrote the music, performed, produced, mastered and sung by Miranda Benhayon on the video which was produced by Clayton Lloyd of Flawless Imaging. 

LCCI president, Deborah Benhayon said whatever people can afford, every dollar will be deeply appreciated.

Ms Benhayon said the aftermath of the recent floods in the wake of Cyclone Debbie had left many businesses devastated and in critical need of support, and for many small businesses flood insurance was unaffordable due to high premium costs.

She said the initiative was to assist those in the small business community who had been affected by the flood.

All proceeds received will be directed to further assist the rebuilding of our businesses community and a committee of community leaders and representatives will be established to ensure the distribution process is transparent with clear parameters and guidelines.

This initiative is proudly supported by: Regional Development Australia Northern Rivers, Lismore City Council, Kevin Hogan MP, Thomas George MP and Southern Cross University and many businesses within the Northern Rivers Region
