Your support will help our mates in the bush when they need it most, through counselling, fodder, and volunteer support. Every donation makes a real difference.

With tax season fast approaching, an end of financial year donation means a tax-deductible credit for you, so there really is no better time to make it count.

For our mates in the bush

Two years ago, ferocious bushfires destroyed kilometers of fencing on his property.“The fire in 2019 in this area was devastating,” Chris said.

Earlier this year a team of Rural Aid volunteers lent a hand on Chris’ property.The quiet mountain block bustled with fencing tools and enthusiastic volunteers.

“Now I’ve got six people giving me a hand and things are getting done so quickly,” Chris said during the middle of the volunteer’s visit.

“I know it’s an adventure for them, and I hope it stays an adventure. Because I am deeply indebted to them.”

Liz and David actively encourage their community to consider Rural Aid’s financial help, if they’re struggling to make ends meet. “It stops people going without the necessities,” David said.“And it actually puts money back into the local economy,” Liz added.

James Neal
Taree, NSW

In March, his farm was hit by the biggest flood James has seen in his lifetime. His 600 cows couldn’t be milked for two days as waters ravaged his dairy and paddocks.

“It was a very stressful time… everyone was physically and mentally exhausted,” James said.A team of Rural Aid volunteers helped James clean up his paddocks, assisting him physically and mentally with his extensive list of recovery jobs.

“We’re lucky we’ve got Rural Aid here to clear some of it [the debris] up.”
