Charity Australia International in association with mosques around NSW and ACT distributed hay bales to farmers on Saturday 17 November 2018. A scientific analysis of Australia’s drought extremes shows that 2018 has been the worst drought in 400 years in NSW.
This year 99% of NSW has been drought-stricken, while other parts of the country are experiencing more rainfall than usual.
Farmers are struggling to feed their animals in these dry conditions and worse still for the farmers is watching their stock die. The drought’s intensity is merciless, it is heartbreaking to watch our farmers, and their animals suffer in this way.
In light of the current devastating drought, Charity Australia International launched its Drought Campaign to raise funds for the farmers and buy hay bales, which were to be delivered to Tamworth, NSW.
The fundraising effort for the farmers was a collective one, with many mosques and individuals donating to the cause.
Charity Australia International’s Team delivered the hay bales to Tamworth on Saturday 17 November 2018. The delivery of the hay bales was received warmly, with a positive response and the Team had a chance to talk to the locals.
