Across Australia, farming communities are fighting the growing and devastating impact of another severe drought. Farming communities are doing it tough with drought impacting Australia's eastern and southern states. The drought has reached severe levels, with 100 per cent of NSW now drought declared and two thirds of Queensland still experiencing drought.
Areas of Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia are facing worsening conditions too. Families are carrying a heavy burden – not only the ongoing struggle to make ends meet, but the despair of watching their livestock perish, and the isolation they feel.
The scale is so big that it can be hard to know how to help… BUT, you can ease the burden on farmers and their families in small practical ways.
What can you do to help?
