Financial stress and inflation cost pressures are two of the top factors that impact farmer mental health.
Aussie farmers might be the last people to ask for help. But when they do need it, we’re here for them.
We help 1,000s of farmers every year by providing the essentials like animal feed, financial assistance, food hampers and fuel cards, school fee support and laptops, and little luxuries like Christmas hampers and gifts for kids.
Our recent survey of Western Queensland and New South Wales farmers found that:
In early 2022, our team members responded to the urgent needs of farmers during the devastating Murwillumbah flood crisis. We visited 48 farmers in five days and provided essential financial support, including paying $380,000 in supplier invoices for farmers from our $5K Aussie Helpers Fund, delivered $15,000 worth of hay, which continues today, and $33,000 in fuel vouchers, visa cards, and hampers and pet food.
Peter & Marissa’s Story
Aussie Helper’s 2023 Murwillumbah Community BBQ was the first time almost 100 farmers and supporting organisations came together after the devastating 2022 floods tore through the Tweed Valley. It was an opportunity to reconnect with farmers and remind them that, even though the floodwaters subsided long ago, they’re not alone.
“We would like to thank Aussie Helpers for all the initial and ongoing support you have given us over the past twelve months. It was wonderful to see you bring all of the farmers of the Tweed together yesterday, to check on us all, one year on from the devastating flood of 2022.”
