How is my BPAY donation helping our Aussie Farmers?

During the campaign period 9 Feb to 31 Mar 2020 all BPAY donations will be distributed through pre-paid cards to drought affected farmers who have registered for assistance through Rural Aid to help pay their bills. After the 31 Mar 2020, donations made via BPAY to Rural Aid will go towards areas where aid is most needed. This is determined by Rural Aid and may include fodder (hay) deliveries, water carting, financial assistance, counselling or other important programs run by Rural Aid.

“I wanted to take the time to write to sincerely thank you for your drought assistance. The gift cards that you sent were very much appreciated. As we are about to go into 8 years of drought with minimal to no useful rain in the past 2 years, things have been extremely difficult and it is also difficult to express how much the assistance / support is appreciated. Please pass on my sincere thank you to the citizens and businesses that have contributed to Rural Aid.”

Ray Bennett

“Very much appreciated and very helpful. Cannot tell you how much this helps with trying to maintain our breeding ewes as we go into winter.

Barry and Helen

“Words can’t express our gratitude for the support of ‘Rural Aid’, something we have never considered before. We have always ‘got by’, but our family suggested we apply for this. We are overwhelmed by this generosity, thanks again.”

June and Darryl Joe Kong

“We just want to say a big thank you for the financial assistance that Rural Aid has recently given. We are extremely grateful and it certainly does make a difference.”
