Australia is being ravaged by the worst wildfires in history. It’s a bushfire crisis that’s been likened to “looking into the gates of hell”
- 24 people across Australia have died, including several volunteer firefighters.
- 15 million acres of land have been burned down.
- Over 2,000 properties destroyed.
- Hundreds of thousands of our fellow Aussies have been displaced.
- 450 native million animals are estimated to have been killed.
- Some populations and eco-systems may never recover.
- Up to 30% of koalas are estimated to have died in fires
And there’s no relief in sight. As Australia’s bushfire crisis continues, we understand that our shattered communities and volunteer firefighters need help, and it’s never been more crucial to chip in to help those affected to help provide some sort of comfort amid the ashes.
In total, more than 5.9 million hectares (14.7 million acres) have been burned across Australia’s six states — an area larger than the countries of Belgium and Haiti combined. The worst-affected state is NSW, with 3.6 million hectares (8.9 million acres) burned.
During times like this, Australian’s are fantastic at coming together to help those in need.
