Fences for Farmers Fundraiser for Cobargo Area

For the last ten days I have been thrust back into my old community of Cobargo after a devastating fire razed not only the town but the whole area. I wrote about it. Many friends have lost homes and farms. Many farmers have lost their herds. I have been told the area is scorched earth, like a massive bomb has gone off and flattened everything. Disaster aid is trickling in. People there are struggling and working hard to get themselves and the community back on its feet.

As Cobargo has been part of my personal history since the 1970s I could not stand by and watch. Neither could my daughter who went to school there. She wanted to do more to help. So I asked the community what they needed most right now and I was told fences. Farmers need fences. They need immediate help with basic infrastructure to help them and their animals.

I then phoned the local agricultural co-op and they have opened a special bank account to administer the funds we raise. https://www.cobargocoop.com.au/

We know lots of people all over the world are donating to the fire fighters and the Red Cross and we know there are lots of towns flattened. Our campaign focuses on one area, one group of people and their immediate needs. 

Fences for Farmers

Every little bit helps!
