Do your part for the Wooroloo and Hills Bushfire

  • February 10, 2021

The devastating bushfires which have ravaged Perth’s hills and our South West have scorched 11,000 hectares of land and destroyed 86 homes. While the emergency warning has been downgraded to “watch and act”, the effects on property lost and the impact on people’s lives and the community still remains.

Auspire encourages all to come together to donate to the Bushfire Appeal in support of those who have lost so much and have a long road ahead to rebuild their lives as a result of the recent bushfires.

The WA Government has also donated a further $2 million to the Perth Lord Mayor’s Distress Relief Fund.

WA Premier Mark McGowan sent his support to those who had lost homes, saying he spoke to several yesterday, all of them “very courageous”.

“The devastation caused by these bushfires is almost too much to comprehend. Many West Australians are hurting right now,” the premier said.

“We’re all thinking of those who’ve lost their homes, in some cases their livelihoods, or had serious damage to their property – it’s devastating.”

A disaster response hotline has been set up to support those affected by the fire. Residents seeking information about potential welfare assistance can call 1800 032 965.

To make a donation, we encourage you to visit the Lord Mayor’s Distress Relief Fund website here or offer your support through Volunteering WA.
