Australian Bushfire Appeal Report 2020

The bushfires in Australia have been rampant since September 2019, destroying dozens of homes, leaving many homeless and displaced, and devastating the habitat of millions of native animals.

It was a whole-body experience. You've got the smell of the smoke, the sight of it and then it gets dark … between the sound of the fire and the roar of the wind, it was just massive.

Bushfire Appeal

In the midst of devastation and loss of livelihood in Australia, generosity rose up from our good neighbours across the globe. Good Neighbours Australia’s Bushfire Appeal has received a total of $10,000 AUD for the past two months from South Korea, the US and Canada.

Good Neighbours Australia has teamed up with OzHarvest to help deliver our funds to where it is most needed and give on-the-ground disaster relief services.

100% of donations to our global bushfire appeal will directly support bushfire-affected communities through OzHarvest, Australia’s leading food rescue charity. OzHarvest will provide an adequate level of food relief to those in need of continuous support to rebuild their lives amidst the devastation and significant financial losses caused by the fires.

Every dollar donated to our bushfire appeal goes towards a recipient, who can claim up to two meals, so we will be giving about 20,000 meals for six months of the period covering the NSW South Coast, Southern Highlands, North Coast and Wagga region.
