HOW AMAZON IS SUPPORTING VICTIMS OF THE AUSTRALIA BUSHFIRE CRISIS
Amazon contributes AU$1million to national efforts to provide relief to communities impacted by this natural disaster.
• Support spanned three areas of focus:
Donating needed items to organisations on the front lines, with BlazeAid. In addition to products donated directly by Amazon, customers are able to donate items requested by BlazeAid, through the nonprofit’s charity wish list. The donated products, including water, food, safety clothing, building materials, and more, have been specifically requested by BlazeAid as essential to aid their volunteers in the recovery efforts.
• Amazon Web Services (AWS) is providing in-kind technical support for many of the government agencies dealing with the response and recovery efforts including Geoscience and Digital Earth Australia, the Bureau of Meteorology, and state agencies such as Land Gate (WA), the Rural Fire Service (NSW), Fires Near Me app, SAFECOM (SA), and the South Australian Department Planning, Transport, and Infrastructure.
• Providing cash donations to relief agencies including the Australian Red Cross, the Salvation Army Australia, WIRES, and Rural and Country Fire Services.
