About Rural Aid
Rural Aid was founded in 2015 to provide a holistic support program to rural Australia. The starting point for the charity was the success of the Buy a Bale campaign, which allows the distribution of fodder, hampers, and more.
In 2018 Rural Aid embarked on the development of a specialised mental health counselling program, 100% fully funded to support rural communities.
Weather events such as drought, fires, and cyclones mean that there is even more call for our services. Rural Aid has several programs designed with rebuilding and repairing in mind. Programs including Farm Rescue and Farm Army see thousands of volunteers give their time to support rural communities, The Gift of Music brings the joy of music to the bush, and mental health counsellors helping reduce stress, domestic violence, suicide and other states of mental health.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF RURAL AID.
