The Indigenous Crisis Response & Recovery Aboriginal Corporation (ICRARAC) organisation responds to the crisis needs of Indigenous people throughout Australia. The bushfire crisis that has unfolded on the South East Coast of Australia. This organisation has been established by Indigenous people for Indigenous people to respond to our current needs in the current bushfire crisis. We are calling on the wider community nationally and beyond to respond and support this unprecedented circumstance that has occurred on the South East Coast of Australia, New South Wales. This is the home of the Yuin people. Many Aboriginal families and communities are at deep loss and in mourning after the mass destruction of the fires resulting in loss of environment and infrastructure. Our environment has been and continues to be obliterated, limiting access to our bush medicines/foods, cultural resources, connection and the overall de-population of flora and fauna. This affects the symbiotic nature of our global existence. We aim to help recover and regenerate land, animals and water to revive and replenish the resources on country that we culturally and spiritually connect to locally and globally. Our country needs healing and we need every walk of life to get behind us to fulfil our responsibility and obligation to caring for country. This fire is something that deeply affects every human being on a global scale. This is climate change. The ICCR's aims are; - Provide crisis relief, response and recovery to disadvantaged Aboriginal people - Provide social welfare support for disadvantaged Aboriginal children, families and aged people in crisis Hi - Operate and maintain gift fund to be known as 'Indigenous Crisis Response and Recovery gift fund' in accordance with the requirements with the requirements of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 - Assist with temporary location support - Assisting with Government agencies connecting to people in crisis - Design and implement projects and programs to prevent crisis - To produce resources to assist with crisis response and recovery; and - To develop and implement models of long-term recovery plans for Aboriginal people, flora and fauna.
