Singapore Red Cross launches public appeal; sends aid to communities affected by Australian Bushfire emergency

Singapore, 6 January 2020 - In response to the catastrophic bushfires that are affecting communities in Australia, the Singapore Red Cross (SRC) will launch a public fundraising appeal, and in the first instance, pledged S$50,000 in humanitarian aid to support affected communities. SRC's contribution and all donations raised will go towards supporting the humanitarian efforts by the Australian Red Cross, for the relief and recovery of survivors.

Touted the worst wildfires Australia has seen in decades, the fires, burning since September, have intensified over the past week. As of 5 January, the death toll has hit 24 across the nation, with more than 60,000 sq km of land burned and more than 1,300 houses destroyed.
