$100,000 RELIEF FROM AUSSIE HELPERS FOR CYCLONE DEBBIE VICTIMS
Aussie Helpers, Australia’s leading rural charity, today announced that it would be assisting primary producers in areas north of Marlborough in Central Queensland, specifically Saint Lawrence, Lotus Creek and Clarke Creek. The decision was made to help these areas as they have not been mentioned in most media reports.
Aussie Helpers’ assistance will ensure communities who would not otherwise be aided will be able to get back on their feet quickly and will help spread relief to farmers in areas other than mainstream towns.
Farming families will be visited by Aussie Helpers volunteers, and every farming family will receive $500 of vouchers for both fuel and groceries from local towns.
There will also be assistance available for material products to replace pumps, tanks or boundary fences. Agforce will be working closely with Aussie Helpers in these areas to get support where it is needed quickly.
Helicopter pilots who donate their time and choppers in distributing food and water will be reimbursed for the fuel used in the rescue mission.
