How you can help
As an international, Christian, relief and development organisation, World Hope International (WHI) stands in solidarity with all those affected by the Australian bushfire crisis and with our Australian partner agencies who are working tirelessly to help them.
WHI is partnering with a local organisation called Braidwood Life Centre to provide relief in the form of emergency housing, clothes, and food.
Braidwood Life Centre NSW is located in the Palerang Council, which has a population of around 15,000. 35 homes have been destroyed and a very large area of farmland decimated.
