-I'm back on family mixed farm, work with multiple generations of our family at the moment. I work mainly in our summer and winter cropping program, and a little with our ewe mob.

How can we best help those affected by fires?


Hi, there are so many fundraising websites and ways to help out those affected by fires, that I'm not sure where to start. Where/what is the best place to go to to help in terms of fodder, agistment, donations, house sharing, volunteer time etc? I know that a long list but I know so many want to assist but aren't sure where to start.

Thanks

My advice for anyone wanting to support farmers directly - make sure the funds are getting to where they are really needed. By reputable agencies or local communities. Blaze Aid, Lions Club & Find a Bed a great starting points if you want to get in and volunteer either your time or resources.

Hi Tom,


If you are intrested in volenteering. The Wodonga Rotary is organising a volenteer fenceing team in the Corryon area. They are starting Monday 13th Jan and plan on contiune working for several weeks/months until the work is complete. There is free camping in the Colca Colca caravan park for the volenteers. Land holders will need to supply the raw materials. (many wire sellers are offing discounted rates for example clipex offering 12% off). Volenteers will work on removing old fences, conducting repairs and then erecting new fences. 


Contact Barry or Peter from Wodonga Rotary for more information.

Tom,   I agree with the good advice given first up. Use well established organisations/charities only. There are plenty of low life scammers trying to use this natural disaster to rip people off.
