Australia is going through what can be considered an unprecedented natural disaster. As the fires worsen, families are being displaced, animals killed, homes destroyed, and businesses harmed.
Over 20 people died and dozens have been missing. Half a billion animals have been killed by the bushfires. About 12.35 million acres of land have burned across Australia.
Yet, the authorities estimate that there is more coming. There are various ways to help those in need as well as the firefighters, animals’ associations and volunteers.
Donations can be made through money and goods. However, it will depend on what the chosen organisation is looking for.
