Living with the despair of ongoing drought can take years to overcome, and even when the grass turns green there is still a hidden layer of pain.
Often those affected are reluctant to ask for help.
GIVIT is working with an organisation in Queensland’s Gulf to help ease some of that hidden pain by jointly helping rural households and local businesses.
Slow internet speeds in the area mean some families are unable to meet obligations for distance education and instead drive their children long distances to school.
These added fuel costs are stretching budgets.
We are requesting funds to purchase fuel vouchers from a local roadhouse to ensure ongoing, vital education for these kids.
Your donation will also help us buy groceries to be delivered with the mail run or a voucher from a local hardware shop, pharmacy, or store.
Every dollar we can spend locally helps energise these families and their community.
Please help by donating to GIVIT’s ‘Drought Relief’ appeal on our Donate Funds page.
Thank you so much for your generosity!
