SA Bushfire Appeal

The South Australian government has launched the SA Bushfire Appeal to raise funds for people directly affected by bushfires in Cudlee Creek and on Kangaroo Island.

Financial donations are the best way to help disaster-affected communities recover, as people can buy exactly what they need and spend locally.

Every contribution, no matter how big or small, can make a difference to those most affected by this tragedy and every dollar donated directly to the appeal goes to those affected by the fires, with the government to absorb all administration costs.
