2) What to do if you wish to directly donate or assit other efforts dealing with the current bush fires burning in Australia in?
On behalf of the Australian Embassy in Mexico.
The Australian Embassy in Mexico appreciates your concerns and support regarding the bushfires affecting some regions of the country. These fires are unprecedented and while Australia is prepared, well organised and well resourced, the rapidly escalating damage and the heart-breaking human cost calls for nothing less than an all-out response.
The Australian Government will continue to deliver further assistance to the states, as they battle these devastating fires, to help protect lives, ensure fire affected communities are well-resourced and functioning, and evacuations can be affected quickly and effectively.
A number of people have contacted the Embassy to ask how they can help. While the Australian Embassy in Mexico is not requesting assistance of any kind, people wanting to help can provide financial donations directly to emergency service agencies or to various charities such as:
- The Red Cross: www.redcross.org.au
- The Salvation Army Disaster Appeal: www.salvationarmy.org.au
- St Vincent de Paul Bushfire Appeal: www.vinnies.org.au
- Wires (injured animals): www.wires.org.au
- NSW Rural Fire Service: www.rfs.nsw.gov.au
- Country Fire Association of Victoria: www.cfa.vic.gov.au
- South Australia Country Fire Service: www.cfsfoundation.org.au
We thank everyone for your kind words and offers of support
Embassy of Australia in Mexico
