More information

Western Australia, South Australia and Victoria have all had significant fires impacting many communities…. The most recent in Western Australia where the whole township of Yarloop was devastated with the loss of town buildings, 120 homes and properties and the loss of two lives. Lions on the ground have been assisting in all areas but more help is needed now to support those impacted to resettle and get their lives going again.

To date, with the assistance of Clubs, the Australian Lions Foundation has provided grants totalling $600,000 to all areas impacted but with the recent Yarloop fires more support will be required. Donations received from Clubs to support this ongoing appeal have raised $333,000.

As Clubs will be starting back after the Christmas and New Year break, we ask that you consider some support for those impacted by these disasters. Funds will be needed more and more to help those who are now recovering from the devastation of the fires and it is always Lions that are there on the front line to help those communities in need.

Clubs wishing to support this appeal can forward cheques through the Cabinet Treasurer in the normal way.

(Donations to this appeal do not qualify for ALF Awards)
