Rural Aid serves as a central point of focus for rural communities who require assistance. We operate on a nationwide basis.
As a charity, Rural Aid is established which has the primary purpose to provide assistance to relieve the poverty, illness, distress or significant and unusual disadvantage of individuals and families conducting, directly or indirectly, primary production businesses and who are or have been adversely affected by acts of God (including, without limitation, droughts, floods and other natural disasters).
Rural Aid runs a number of rural support programs:
Maybe you’ve heard of the Buy a Bale fodder assistance program, or would like to join the 6000 plus strong Farm Army, or would love to join CEO’s Under the Stars, or have a musical instrument you’d like to donate to The Gift of Music .
Rural Aid is the sum of donors, volunteers, corporate and our wonderful staff who each week strive to provide the best form of assistance to those in most need in rural Australia. Thank you for being a part of our work.
