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
In the 4 years since we started the Buy a Bale program and now Rural Aid, I’ve not come across a job I feel so impassioned about.
I first met John and Narelle, cattle farmers, 3 years ago – they were one of the first recipients of Australian generosity through Buy a Bale.
This month, we’d like to have your support to remodel an original farm house to put John and Narelle under a roof and between walls that aren’t riddled with termites.
Today their house is irreparable. The cost to replace the frame is prohibitive so the decision has been made to gut and rebuild the original farmhouse on the property. It’s a huge job but will change their lives forever, it will go someway to repaying their service to their local community through the NSW RFS. Read More if you can help
