The news headlines may have turned to COVID-19 but we haven’t forgotten those who, only months ago, had their lives turned upside down by devastating bushfires.
In partnership with the Victorian Government and Windermere Child and Family Services, already $6.9 million is now working hard to rebuild their lives.
Windermere Child and Family Services is an independent community service organisation. They are co-ordinating the distribution of housing relief payments to Victorians on behalf of the Appeal.
Funds are helping with securing accommodation and replacing household and personal items lost to the fires.
Dr Lynette Buoy, CEO Windermere Child and Family Services, said the provision of funds will provide much needed relief and reduce instances of financial hardship.
“We sincerely thank all Victorians who donated so generously to the Victorian Bushfire Appeal over the last number of months. Without this support, hundreds of Victorian households would be facing a very uncertain time. Our purpose - as an organisation - is to make a practical difference in the lives of individuals, families and communities,” Dr Buoy said.
These are your donations in the hands of those who need help.
