We are all watching it with a broken heart – the worst bushfire season in Australia’s history. More than 8,5 million hectares burned, over 1500 homes destroyed and over 480 million animals have died due to bushfires that have started in September 2019.
Our hearts go out to everyone being affected by the bushfires in Australia. We are beyond grateful for the remarkable men and women who’ve been fighting fires and helping people and animals.
