VACCHO at the request of ACCOs in the Gippsland region have become the point of contact for all bushfire donations until such times that a Foundation is established.
VACCHO Members organisations have been both impacted by the bush fires, and are playing an essential role in emergency relief, particularly as a first responder. This demands of this role are expected to increase in the coming weeks. VACCHO will be coordinating support to ACCHOs by working with our other Member services to provide workforce support to address the immediate needs.
As you will no doubt appreciate our Members' hands are full in assisting their Communities and they will be relying on us to carry some the administrative load around this work. We've established a dedicated bank account so that all donations can go directly to affected Member services, to support the healing their Communities.
