BlazeAid Volunteers Urgently Needed at Walwa/Jingellic

Despite a Covid-19 enforced break, you may be surprised to know the voluntary work of BlazeAid is continuing in this area, more than nine months after the fires went through, and there are still many farming properties desperately needing help with fencing. 

Long-term volunteers need a break and more volunteers are urgently needed to not only help with fencing and tree planting but also cooking, cleaning and camp admin at the Walwa camp, on the southern (or Victorian) side of the Murray River. 

In an effort to consolidate resources, the Jingellic camp (on the northern side of the river) has just closed but the Jingellic/Walwa community is being serviced from the one site at Walwa.

There’s no more scenic place to be than the Upper Murray in Springtime.

Even though the grass is now green, recovery from bushfire is a long and hard journey… 

So a few days of your time can make a lifetime of difference to a devastated farming family.

NB: Anyone residing in the NSW/Vic ‘Border Bubble’ can freely travel to Walwa, however please refer to the Victorian Department of Health & Human Services website (www.dhhs.vic.gov.au ) or Services NSW (www.nsw.gov.au) to ensure you are complying with current COVID-19 regulations.
