Isolation is something our Aussie farmers continually battle. In the last few weeks, many of us have faced these same battles due to COVID-19 restrictions and state lockdowns. We’ve experienced firsthand what it means to be cut off from the rest of the world and lost access to our community, friends, and family. When we reflect on our time in lockdown and isolation, we can’t help but think of our Aussie farmers who are isolated year round.
The isolation of our friends out bush is something we work to decrease. Through Bush Chaplaincy and our Outback Links program, we aim to bridge the divide in emotional and practical support for so many Aussies living in regional and remote Australia. It is only through your generous and ongoing support that we can address these issues, and lessen the effects of isolation that many of us have had a glimpse into recently.
By purchasing a seat to our virtual Great Outback BBQ or committing to host your own physical BBQ, you are supporting isolated Australians overcome the challenges they face through practical, emotional, and spiritual care.
In a time where we’d all be grateful for increased personal connection, the Great Outback BBQ is a great opportunity to connect with others for a meaningful cause. Buy a seat at our virtual BBQ or register to host your own physical BBQ to make a direct impact in the lives of farmers living in remote Australia. Farmers like Bronwyn and Gordon.
Bronwyn and Gordon reached out to Frontier Services in a state of panic when they realised they weren’t going to be able to attend their son’s wedding because there was no one they trusted to look after their farm. Funds raised at the Great Outback BBQ enabled Frontier Services to send Outback Links volunteers to Bronwyn and Gordon, and ensured they were able to see their son wed his new bride!
Your support allows us to provide vital emotional, spiritual, and practical support to thousands of farmers. Don’t miss your chance to make a lasting impact in the lives of people who need our support!
