LEARN MORE ABOUT AUSSIE HELPERS
Aussie Helpers Ltd is a non profit registered charity that has been operating since 21 May 2002.
The charity is operated by over forty volunteers working around Australia. These volunteers fully embody the spirit of volunteering, freely giving their own time and expertise and they have created a charitable association that is strongly supported by local communities including citizens and small businesses, many of whom have donated and supplied goods and services to enable Aussie Helpers to achieve its goal of “helping to fight poverty in the bush”.
This bonding of ordinary people and the business community has created a feeling in the community of a profound sense of community spirit which has made it a priority to help others less fortunate and those who are going through tough times.
Aussie Helpers impacts on the people and places we connect with and is fully verified by the hundreds of letters we receive each year from farming families assisted by Aussie Helpers – See some of our Testimonies HERE.
Aussie Helpers visits to the farming families are not meant to solve any major problems however at times just knowing that someone cares about them and their difficult situation in the bush offers a hope of better days.
Many people are astounded that such an organisation such as ‘Aussie Helpers’ even exists let alone does what it does for people in the bush.
The beneficiaries of Aussie Helpers activities are genuine people who are going through really tough times. The majority of the people Aussie Helpers deal with would not ask for help nor expect it. Once these farmers get back on their feet the flow-on benefits the rural communities and country towns, and ultimately our city folk.
Aussie Helpers have proven beyond doubt that if people are fully committed to a worthwhile cause the local communities will embrace the organisation that in turn instills a sense of pride, even if they are not a member of the organisation, and people can relate to what is being achieved in their communities.
The long term effect of the work being done in all aspects: counseling, visits, excursions, human food, stock feed and work with unwanted homeless people all culminate into building and strengthening the families in the bush, the farming communities the country people and the country towns.
