Australia is experiencing its worst fires in history. Twenty three lives have been lost since September, dozens of people are missing and more than 1500 homes have been destroyed.
Many thousands couldn’t enjoy Christmas this year because of the devastation.
Thankfully, it was just announced 3,000 reserve troops will be deployed to help tackle raging bushfires across the country. Defence Minister Linda Reynolds said this is the first time this had happened in Australia’s history.
As countless people officers put their lives on the line and many people are left homeless, Australia and the world have them in their thoughts and prayers. Much needed donations are also pouring in during this time.
