Disasters

Australia is now on an El Nino alert, and as the months roll on, the likelihood of hotter drier conditions returning increases the inevitability of droughts and bushfires.

After so much rain in recent years, it’s easy for metropolitan Australia to forget the devastation of drought.

Farmers know that there’s nothing new under the sun. History, droughts and recessions, have a bad habit of repeating themselves.

Farmers are rightly anxious. Aussie Helpers’ recent survey of Western Queensland and New South Wales farmers found that 73% of survey respondents anticipate their biggest concerns or challenges in the next 12 months will be environmental, including drought.

Winsome’s Story

“I first contacted Aussie Helpers during the drought when I was looking for any kind of help at that time.
 
Aussie Helpers provided wide-ranging support: a simple cup of tea, a smile and friendly ‘hello, how are you going?’, food hampers and water supplies, livestock feed and even fuel cards.

It was unbelievable. And it wasn’t so much the dollar value. It was the relief that I didn’t have to reach into my pocket to pay for one more thing that day.
 
The Aussie Helpers’ depot is a cheerful and welcoming community meeting place. It’s a nice place to go and visit because they always have a smile on their face no matter, and smiles are contagious—even when you’re living day by day and trying to work out what’s coming next.”

Winsome, NSW Farmer
