AUSTRALIA IS BURNING
Donate An Essential Firefighter Kit Today
A cloud of ash the size of the USA can be seen cloaking Australia from space, choking millions of people and animals alike.
With homes, habitats, and lives being lost to the flames, this is one of the worst bushfire seasons in living memory – and with the rest of the summer months stretching before them, it is a terrifying time for Australians across the country.
One firefighter, Gary, told author Matthew Battles about his experiences, writing:
“My emotions are always only millimeters from the surface. I cry at the drop of a hat. I keep crying because we cannot save all of the houses and people.”
As fires continue to rage across Victoria and New South Wales, firefighters still have many long, dangerous days ahead of them.
