YOUR COUNTRY CHARITY PARTNER
Rural Aid was founded in 2015 to provide a holistic support program to rural Australia. The starting point for the charity was the success of the Buy a Bale campaign, which to date has received over $4.5 million in donations and distributed this through fodder, hampers and more. We understand the needs of our primary producers and aim to lend a helping hand when times are tough.
Recent weather events such as fires and cyclones have meant that there is even more call for our services than ever before. We have a number of programs designed with rebuilding and repairing in mind. These include the Farm Rescue and Weekend Warriors programs, as well as the Farm Army job board where farmers can find help that they need.
The concept for Under the Stars – Outback Experience came from our desire to find ways of breaking down the distance between city and bush people. What better way than for city people to go bush, and in school holiday time when it’s possible for kids to come along and really get to know the great farmers and community members of Australia’s rural communities.
