I'm /u/Menial_Tasking and I have had the pleasure being part of this community for some time now. It has been a great source of strength for me. But now I need to tell you about something not so great.
I am Australian, and you may or may not have heard that we are suffering through a harsh drought even though we are well into our winter months.
Simply put, there is no water for crops or livestock. There is no rain to grow food for livestock, meaning farmers are being forced to buy food which has become prohibitively expensive due to demand. One farmer very recently was forced to shoot over 1300 head of sheep as they were dying of malnutrition and dehydration. They were so sick they could not even be sold to a butcher for scrap meat, pet food or the various other uses. Farmers are being forced to mass cull entire herds and bury them in mass pits. Crops are dying and farmers have no income.
These families are losing everything they own. Animals are suffering. They both need help.
The Australian Red Cross is running a Drought Relief campaign to raise money to provide farmers with fuel for their vehicles, money to put food on their table, help with medical expenses and buy food for their stock.
