Australian Bushfires – How you can help

As fires tear through Australian communities, destroying lives, homes and animals, many are wondering what they can do to help victims and support firefighters.

Here’s how you can help.

In addition to praying for the affected communities, you can make a financial donation to support the communities affected by the recent and continuing bushfires. Here are some of the organisations and charities that our local churches have shared appeal information about.

Please give generously to those in need.
