What a disaster is unfolding here in Australia. There's so much to be written and analysed at some time in some other place about the causes and impacts. In the meantime, people and animals need help. Here's an attempt to bring together some of the fundraising and other appeals for help arising from the devastating bushfires we've been experiencing in Australia.
For those looking on from parts of Australia that are not affected, or anywhere around the world where you may be reading this, we hope this will help you consider how you could assist.
