Summary

With Team Rubicon Australia actively responding to the Australian Bushfires in both NSW, Victoria, and SA, this project supports the Team Rubicon Network's coordinated recovery and relief efforts to those communities impacted by the Australian Bushfires. Since early December 2019, Team Rubicon volunteers from the UK, Norway, and all over Australia have been hard at work in communities. Scope of work includes debris removal, chainsaw operations, sifting for valuables, and delivery of water & aid.

Challenge

Western and Southern Australia are in the midst of a historic drought. Dry conditions have made the area a tinder box, with many bush fires simultaneously popping up across the country since late November 2019.

Solution

The volunteers of TRAustralia have conducted relief operations in New South Wales, including debris removal, sifting for valuables, chainsawing, and large quantity water delivery across the region in collaboration with state & local authorities. TR Australia also launched an additional operation in the Adelaide Hills area of SA and is currently mobilizing another response to the Gippsland area of Victoria. Your tax deductible donation to TR Global directly supports the TR Australia team.

Long-Term Impact

After the fire crews and news cameras have left, Team Rubicon Australia's impact is the immediate relief and response to communities affected by the bushfires. The goal is to help homeowners and locals start the rebuild process sooner, thereby aiding them in getting back on their feet sooner, as well. TR Australia provides help and hope to the communities in need and, in tandem, provides veterans with a new opportunity for service and purpose.
