Australian bushfires - How to help

australia-1068578

Like so many others around the world, the SWS membership has watched in horror and sadness as fires have erupted and swept across parts of Australia, claiming human lives, homes and property, devastating wildlife populations and setting ecosystems on uncertain trajectories. Some of our Australian members remain on high alert with evacuation plans and packed bags as new fires break out. Our hearts and thoughts go out to them.

If you are interested in helping but are not sure where to begin, you might consider donating to one of the non-profit organizations. Please be careful, however, because there are a number of scams out there on the internet. Make sure the organization is reputable, and that you send the donation directly to the charity, rather than through a middleman (beware of separate websites that say they are raising money for that charity). There are a bunch of go-fund-me campaigns, most of which are difficult to verify their authenticity. It may be helpful to do a little research and find legitimate organizations where donated funds are going to help on the ground efforts. If you see a charity you haven't heard of, you can check to see if it's an official non-profit before donating by searching Australia's charity database at acnc.gov.au/charity.

Here are just a few of the legitimate non-profit organizations that are helping:

  • Salvation Army Australia
  • NSW Rural Fire Service
  • Australian Red Cross
  • GIVIT
  • NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service (WIRES)
  • Australian Koala Foundation
  • World Wildlife Fund


Thank you,

Loretta Battaglia

As deadly bushfires ravage Australia, compassion is proving to burn brighter still as kind people the world over extend their hands in friendship and assistance to those in need — human and animal alike.
