#AUSSIEGRAIN4UKRAINE CHARITIES NOMINATED Australian grain producers have chosen the charities that will help deliver humanitarian support for Ukrainian farmers and their communities, from grain donated from this year’s harvest.
The #AUSSIEGRAIN4UKRAINE appeal was announced earlier this year with a farmer-led Grain Producers Australia (GPA) sub-committee formed to drive the fundraising campaign. The sub-committee has now approved the UN Crisis Relief’s Ukraine Humanitarian Fund and World Vision Ukraine Appeal to provide targeted support for farming families and communities in need.
The World to Rebuild Rural Ukraine program has also been chosen to specifically help rural communities and farms with rebuilding efforts, and Oxfam International. Sub-committee spokesperson and WA grain producer, David Fulwood, said a number of suggestions were received and assessed by the sub-committee with these four charities determined to be the most effective for delivering real support.
“One or two tonnes of grain donated from this Aussie harvest will make a huge difference for Ukraine farmers and their families, to help them get through this crisis.” Australian grain producers are being urged to donate grain delivered from this year’s winter harvest via a dedicated Grower Delivery Card, registered to GPA, in the National Grower Register system.
The Grower Delivery Card in the NGR is numbered 1500 4442 and registered to GPA.
