Help Support Farmers Affected By Bushfires

Written by: The Griffith Phoenix


NSW Farmers welcome donations to help support farmers in Northern NSW affected by recent bushfires.

NSW Farmers has activated its natural disaster fund to accept cash donations to support farmers in Northern NSW affected by the recent bushfires.

This Bushfire Appeal has been established under the NSW Farmers Natural Disaster Relief Fund, a registered charity that supports farmers in NSW affected by bushfires and floods.

NSW Farmers CEO, Annabel Johnson said recent bushfires in NSW had severely impacted communities already battling drought-like conditions, with pasture burnt and expensive repair bills on the way.

“These fires have had a terrible impact on communities who faced the ferocity of Black Summer just four years ago,” Ms Johnson said.

“Bushfires have a devastating impact for farmers - as well as the loss of vegetation and pasture, fences and machinery are often destroyed, and sadly there will also be animals lost.

“The impact on farmers and their families, livestock, crops and natural environments has been devastating.

“Any cash donations will be welcomed and distributed to those who need it.”

NSW Farmers is working with government agencies and rural charities as affected communities transition from emergency assistance to recovery support.

Farmers affected by the bushfires can report stock losses and infrastructure damage, and request animal assessment or emergency fodder or water for stock, by calling the Agricultural and Animal Services Hotline on 1800 814 647.

People without a phone can send a direct messge via the NSW DPI Facebook page.
