Ben Ferris: Raising funds to Help Aussie Farmers.

Disaster Relief and Recovery: Help Aussie Farmers

I'm raising funds to help Aussie farmers

Across our sunburnt country, farming communities are fighting the growing and devastating impact of severe drought.

They’ve been hit hard by prolonged dry weather, especially in NSW, the ACT and Queensland. I was shocked to learn that approximately 99% of NSW and 57% of Queensland is in drought.

Families are carrying a heavy burden – not only the ongoing struggle to make ends meet, but the despair of watching their livestock perish, and the isolation they feel.

I want to help them so I’m raising funds for the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Appeal to Help Aussie Farmers. I’d love it if you could help me by making a donation to my fundraising page.

Thanks for your support.
