Health & Wellbeing
An online version of the Bushfire Relief Fund Request form that pastors can use to request funds for their bushfire affected churches and communities. The funds collected for the bushfire response appeal will be used to support bushfire families in hardship with personal and family living needs.
Some examples include:
Vouchers for purchasing groceries and personal care expenses (e.g. clothing etc)
Vouchers for purchasing fuel
Payment of medical expenses or mental health expenses (e.g. counselling) which are not able to be covered by Medicare or private health cover.
Funds are not to be distributed as cash. Funds will be disbursed through local Baptist churches who will be able to identify local people who are in need because of the bushfire.
Do you find it too hard to talk face to face or over the phone?
