Your Country Charity Partner
Rural Aid was founded in 2015 to provide a holistic support program to rural Australia. The starting point for the charity was the success of the Buy a Bale campaign, which to date has received over $4.5 million in donations and distributed this through fodder, hampers and more. We understand the needs of our primary producers and aim to lend a helping hand when times are tough.
Recent weather events such as fires and cyclones have meant that there is even more call for our services than ever before. We have a number of programs designed with rebuilding and repairing in mind. These include the Farm Rescue and Weekend Warriors programs, as well as the Farm Army job board where farmers can find help that they need. Come and join us.
Our next Farm Rescue
This Dairy farming family of 4 in northern Victoria need our assistance. Their two bedroom house is splitting at the seams and the eldest boy is looking for his own space. The family built a shed on the farm to run their admin from but have decided to convert it into a room.
As dairy farmers, their income has been slashed over the last 2 years and making the inside of this shed liveable is beyond them at the moment.
So we’ve decided with the assistance of our volunteers that once we’ve raised the funds to purchase the supplies, The Farm Rescue, Tradies and Volunteers will head to site and complete the job. Read More if you can help
