Wandella devastation bushfire appeal!!!

My Uncle Peter McCarthy and his family have lost everything they own including their house, animals and farm last week when the fire devastated Wandella.  The fires came so quickly Peter, his family and neighbours did not have time to escape whilst trying to protect and save their homes and animals. Peter and surrounding neighbours had to hide from the fire for hours under blankets in a small damn on their property. Sadly Peter, friends and family have lost so much life including their homes, everything sentimental, sheds, farming tools and most of their animals. Peter has spent the last few days burying his loved animals and taking care of the animals who survived and are injured. They are struggling to feed and care for the animals with no food and supplies. They desperately need help as does the surrounding communities of Wandella and Cabargo which were completely devastated. With your help we will be able to assist in feeding the animals, any medical care for injured animals and rebuilding animal homes and fencing. We want to help as many of peters animals, friends and family as we can. If you know Peter you know he wouldn't ask anything from anyone and would help his community and animals before himself.  These guys are my family and we appreciate any help or support. 

This is real and not a fake fundraiser. You can contact me on 0419477400 or [email redacted]. 

All our love to everyone in the same position with family members, friends and communities who have lost anything from these hard circumstances.
