We have now concluded our emergency services to firefighters and in five days, we have provided over 11,000 meals. The next phase of support is to establish a point of assistance from which financial and other support can be provided. We are working with other agencies and government departments to assist where required.
The Salvation Army has set aside $60,000 for emergency financial payments which, when combined with other financial aid, will provide very meaningful support to those affected. Over the next few weeks, we will continue to provide a consistent support presence ready to assist with a range of needs.The Salvation Army are committed to providing support through to full recovery.
