Disaster relief and recovery

WILDFIRE's Bushfire Appeal

Currently large, uncontrolled bushfires are ravaging through parts of Australia. These bushfires are causing mass devastation with people losing their loved ones, homes, animals, stock and farmland. In Victoria, more than 40 bushfires are burning with over 500,000 hectares of land burnt so far in the 2019 fire season.

While we may not be able to help fight the fires on the frontline, there are ways we can assist those in need. We at Monash University?s Rural Health Club, Wildfire, have created this page to help raise much needed funds for people affected by the recent bushfires. All money raised goes directly to the Red Cross Disaster Recovery and Relief, which is currently running evacuation centres, and providing mental health first aid and emergency grants for people across the country who have been affected by the bushfires. Any donation, big or small, will be greatly appreciated in this time of need.

Other ways to donate financially include:?

1. VicEmergency Bushfire Disaster Appeal -?https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?

2. Gippsland emergency relief fund -?https://www.gerf.org.au/donate/

3. Upper Murray Relief fund -?https://www.facebook.com/donate/2744699735599725/2815559718483686/

4.?Salvation Army disaster appeal -?https://www.salvationarmy.org.au/?/make-a-d?/donate-online/??

While financial donations have been recognised as being most beneficial during this time, we understand that donations may not be feasible for everyone. If this is the case, you can still support those affected by the bushfires through:

1. Donating household items through GIVIT

- GIVIT?s Queenslands bushfire appeal -? https://givit.worldsecuresystems.com/items-needed?campaign=49

- GIVIT?s New South Wales bushfire appeal? - https://givit.worldsecuresystems.com/items-needed?campaign=50

2. Donating items or goods to Australia post who will pass on donations to the Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund.

3. Donating items or time to the Rescue Collective - https://therescuecollective.com/

4. Donating blood to the Red Cross Blood Service?

Thank you for your support in helping those affected by the 2019 bushfires.
