Helping Australian communities rebuild

AustraliaFireAppeal

Australia is facing one of the worst bushfire seasons in human history. Fires have ravaged more than 25 million acres, taking lives, destroying homes and impacting wildlife – leaving behind devastated families, communities and environmental landscapes. Our thoughts are with all those affected by this tragedy.

Population International is assisting with the disaster and emergency relief efforts – providing mission critical Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) and medical supplies.

While the devastation in Australia has been unthinkable, there has been incredible support and donations from all around the world. There is still more to do. If you’re in a position to contribute, the donations received by Population International will go directly to aid relief efforts.
