THE Coun­try Women’s As­so­ci­a­tion (CWA) of NSW Dis­as­ter Re­lief Fund was set up specif­i­cally to as­sist in­di­vid­u­als and fam­i­lies in fi­nan­cial cir­cum­stances due to dis­as­ter. At present, funds are be­ing directed to help farm­ers and their fam­i­lies in NSW strug­gling with wors­en­ing drought con­di­tions, to as­sist with house­hold ex­penses such as gro­ceries, ve­hi­cle main­te­nance, school, elec­tric­ity, a rates in­stal­ment up to $1000, as well as tele­phone, den­tal and med­i­cal bills.

The CWA of NSW Dis­as­ter Re­lief Fund re­ceived an ad­di­tional $15,000 from bear­ing and trans­mis­sion sup­pli­ers CBC, BSC and Web­ster BSC (all three are part of the Inenco Group) on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 26.

“We have been work­ing di­rectly with farm­ers for close to 100 years in this coun­try and have seen first-hand the ef­fects the cur­rent drought is hav­ing on our cus­tomers. At our re­cent Na­tional Branch Man­agers’ Sum­mit we col­lec­tively de­cided to con­trib­ute funds to sup­port the peo­ple we have worked closely with via the help of the CWA,” CEO of the Inenco In­dus­trial So­lu­tions Stream, Paul Con­nolly, said.

“We chose CWA be­cause of their out­stand­ing track record in the com­mu­nity and the fact that they have a straight for­ward process to get funds to the af­fected fam­i­lies,” Mr Con­nolly added.

“On be­half of the CWA and drought af­fected fam­i­lies who will ben­e­fit from this do­na­tion, we thank the Inenco Group,” Won­gar­bon CWA Branch Pres­i­dent and im­me­di­ate Mac­quarie Group CWA Past Pres­i­dent Ma­jorie Blatch said.

"We en­cour­age fam­i­lies who are af­fected to head to our web­site and com­plete the ap­pli­ca­tion form. The grants are avail­able, and we want to make sure we get it to fam­i­lies as soon as pos­si­ble," she said.
