Despite risking their lives every single day since September as VOLUNTEERS, the Firies have been struggling with self funding the proper, SAFE respiratory masks with no assistance besides a standard paper P2 (disposable) from the RFS and silence from Scomo.
My Sisters Keeper Ophelia, a woman who blogs about her journey with cancer, has been doing amazing groundbreaking work supplying masks to over a THOUSAND people, but still has over FIFTY brigades begging for help and the list just keeps getting bigger.
A mask might cost a lot for one of us individually, but if we help out we can buy a few and make a real difference in keeping our volunteer fire fighters alive !
ALL the money will go to buying respirators once My Sisters Keeper Ophelia is back on her feet. NO charity or government funding is helping keep our fire fighters safe, when some of the biggest fires in history are taking lives. Preventive solutions like this can help STOP the fires instead of purely disaster relief.
Please help if you can ! It all adds up!
