Fires in Australia

Rescue & Recover Fund mobilizes for victims of fires in Australia

Massive fires burning out of control have been ravaging Australia since mid-December counting dozens of deaths, nearly a billion animals killed and swathes of land the size of Ireland totally destroyed. BNP Paribas has launched a call for donations.

BNP Paribas had respond to the appeal for aid from the Australian Red Cross, launching a campaign to raise funds through its Rescue & Recover Fund. Since the outbreak of the wildfires that have ravaged Australia nearly 30 persons have died, thousands of people have lost everything and hundreds of millions of animals have been killed. Since the begining of the campaign, almost 90.000 euros have been collected by the Rescue & Recover Fund.

Your help is priceless!

The situation is expected to worsen in the days ahead due to unfavorable weather conditions. More than 1,500 homes have been destroyed, leaving residents homeless and without access to food or drinking water. Many areas still cannot be reached by emergency teams.

The entire population of south-eastern Australia is now suffering from the consequences of the fires, in particular due to hazardous air pollution.

To help the Red Cross aid the affected populations, the BNP Paribas Rescue & Recover Fund is launching an appeal to your generosity. Your donation will go towards evacuation of the injured, supply of drinking water, emergency kits, drugs, first aid and the preparation of the thousands of shelters needed for survivors.
