How to donate to fire affected families in Perth
71 families in the Perth Hills and north-eastern suburbs are now without homes, as firefighters continue to assess the damage from the devastating bushfires.
Thankfully there has been no injuries to members of the public or loss of life, but many have lost their treasured belongings and a roof over their head.
The devastating fire has burned through more than 10,000 hectares of land, and firefighters are working tirelessly to control the blaze.
A number of organisations are now raising funds to help people affected by the fires, including the Red Cross and Salvation Army.
The Lord Mayor’s Distress Relief Fund has been activated and people can donate online or by calling 1300 998 227.
Donations can also be made to the fund via EFT Transfer – BSB: 306-188 Account: 0340258
Money donated to the relief fund will go directly to the victims of the bushfires.
RSPCA WA is assisting with care for injured animals who have been lost or abandoned.
