Waroona/Harvey Farmers Fire Appeal
$44,735 of $50,000 goal
The blaze has currently burnt more than 50,000 hectares and destroyed at least 95 homes. Three people from Yarloop are also unaccounted for.
The response to the Esperance fires in November was overwhelming, and urged people to continue to help those in desperate need of aid by redirecting their focus towards the current fires.
The Esperance community has been overwhelmed by the continued support from people six weeks after the fires and is in the process of using donated funds and goods to repair their livelihoods.
WAFarmers now ask people to focus their attention on the Waroona fires and donate much needed cash through the GoFundMe account which has been set up.
Cash is the most practical donation at this stage as people slowly start to assess the damage and determine what they need to repair their lives.
Once the fires are extinguished and the full extent of the damage can be determined, more information about how to support the affected communities will be provided.
Please heed emergency warnings and work cooperatively with emergency service personnel and volunteers.
Check the Department of Fire and Emergency Services website ( www.dfes.wa.gov.au) and Twitter feed (@dfes_wa) for the latest information on the fires and for evacuation information.
Just want to confirm that this account is genuine. I am unsure why it says the account is in NZ, I have checked through the settings and there doesn't seem to be an obvious way to update this.
All funds collected will be distributed solely to Farmers affected by the fires.
If you have any questions please call the WAFarmers office on (08) 9486 2100
Thanks once again for all your support.
