Relief Effort for Drought Affected Families

Joseph Merz

Literally thousands of farming families in Australia are facing starvation with no money to buy supplies due to the current drought.

Here’s what we’re doing about it
The families are without basic food items. Communities are doing what they can but more is needed. We’re reaching out to our manufacturing and logistics contacts for food donations and we’re also organising gift cards for other items such as fuel etc.

We’re working with local groups with local knowledge including Drought Angels to distribute the donated food and gift cards out to the families that need them most.

You can join us
If you are a food manufacturing business you can donate food by getting in touch with us. If you’re a logistics company we’d love your support moving food from warehouses out to the rural distribution areas. If you are an individual who can donate, your donation will go to BP, Caltex or IGA gift vouchers.

For food and transport support: Please reach out to Claudia Koh at claudia.koh@sterning.com

For monetary donations for gift cards: Please visit https://chuffed.org/project/helping-drought-farmers

If you can’t do any of those things, don’t worry, you can still help by spreading the word!
