In recognition of the devastating impact that the floods have had in Queensland, Visa has made a donation to the Queensland Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal. Visa is also matching the personal donations of our employees. Our thoughts are with the people of Queensland during this time and we wish them well during the coming days and months as they rebuild their lives and communities.
