In early January 2020, massive bushfires burned out of control through areas of the NSW south coast. Over 499,621 hectares was burned, and over 74 days, destroying 394 homes. Samaritan’s Purse responded by deploying our Disaster Relief Unit and a volunteer team to Batemans Bay, NSW to meet the needs of bushfire-affected communities along the south coast. Partnering with local churches in the area, volunteers were able to clean properties, cut trees, sift through ashes, and offer physical and emotional support hundreds of individuals affected by the fires.

Over three months, we served the Batemans Bay community in Jesus’ Name.
