Muslims United for Australia
Muslims have come together to support our brothers and sisters in need who are affected by the Australian bush fires. Fires have destroyed homes, wildlife and will have a long term impact on the lives of thousands. As Muslims, it is our duty to support those in need and our neighbours in Australia need us now more than ever. Collectively, we’re responding now when they need us the most.
The Largest Bushfires in the past decade
More than 150 fires continue to burn across New South Wales, Australia. Authorities had issued emergency alerts for 10 of those bushfires, down from 13 earlier in the evening. Of most concern are fires burning on the NSW South Coast, including near Nowra and Eden. Out-of-control fires were also causing significant concerns in the Snowy Mountains and the Southern Highlands. Early reports suggest the loss of homes in the Snowies. Properties are also currently under threat in the Southern Highlands and on the South Coast.
