Australian Bushfires Report

January – June 2020

Red Cross is pleased to present its six-month bushfire report, a testament to the strength of those who endured the Black Summer bushfires, the kindness of those who donated, and the dedication of our volunteers and staff.

Because of you, Red Cross have been able to:
• support 49,718 people through 37 fires from September to March
• disburse $133m at 30 June, including grants for 4,380 people (and counting!)
• establish a recovery footprint in 47 local government areas

The report provides a full account of how donor funds are being used, plus insight into the triple burden of drought, bushfires and COVID-19, the key components of the organisation's recovery program, and recommendations to the Natural Disasters Royal Commission.
