Welcome to BlazeAid
A volunteer-based organisation that works with families and individuals in rural Australia after natural disasters such as fires and floods. Working alongside the rural families, our volunteers help to rebuild fences and other structures that have been damaged or destroyed.
Equally important, volunteers also help to lift the spirits of people who are often facing their second or third flood event after years of drought, or devastating losses through bushfires. BlazeAid volunteers work in a disaster-affected area for many months, not only helping individuals and families, but also helping rebuild the local communities.
Not just rebuilding fences, but helping rebuild lives.
“We asked you to come help us rebuild our fences but you guys have done way more than that, you have helped us rebuild our broken community. For that we are forever grateful to you and all the amazing volunteers.”
Maree Perkins, Monto, Qld, 2013 Flood
How to Help?
You don’t need any fencing experience, just a willingness to give it a go and learn on the job. You can volunteer for a day or two, or a week or more. Simply contact the Camp Coordinator a few days before you’re ready to come to the basecamp.
Please give us a call before you arrive.
Once you’ve decided which basecamp you would like to come to, please phone the Camp Coordinator a few days before you arrive. We can then get you into a fencing team, add you to our dinner list, and work out your accommodation. For more information visit this page.
