BlazeAid is a volunteer-based organisation that works with families and individuals in rural Australia after natural disasters such as fires and floods. Working alongside the rural families, our volunteers help to rebuild fences that have been damaged or destroyed.
Equally important, volunteers also help to lift the spirits of people who are often facing their second or third flood event after years of drought, or devastating losses through bushfires. BlazeAid volunteers work in a disaster-affected area for many months, not only helping individuals and families, but also helping rebuild the local communities.
“We asked you to come help us rebuild our fences but you guys have done way more than that, you have helped us rebuild our broken community. For that we are forever grateful to you and all the amazing volunteers.”

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with BlazeAid. 2014 Bushfires
We are saddened to see so many Australians once again devastated by recent bushfires.
We estimate that volunteers will be needed for at least 6-8 weeks at all of our basecamps, and longer at some basecamps.
We will be working over the Easter public holidays.
Fencing from our Victorian basecamps is underway at:
– Laharum, The Grampians
– Clarkefield, near Sunbury
