CWA of NSW Drought Aid

March 2019


The Country Women’s Association (CWA) of NSW continues to release much needed financial assistance from its Disaster Relief Fund to help farm families in NSW struggling with severe drought conditions.

So far over 6,100 applications have been processed with over $10 million being released to families in need to assist with household bills.

These funds have been put together purely from donations from across the country - a huge thank you to the individuals, companies, philanthropists and corporations who have donated so that we have been able to distribute funds to
so many.

So many regions across NSW are experiencing some of the driest conditions in recent memory after record‐low rainfall and warmer than average weather conditions. All this amounts to an increasing number of farmers being pushed to the financial brink.

Please donate to our State Disaster Relief Fund. All donations are tax deductible and will go a long way to helping us help those that really need it. 100% of your donation goes to the farmers as no admin fee is applied.

Anyone requiring drought assistance can easily apply here. Those that haven’t received the $3000 limit can email their additional bills to

Money raised will help with groceries, vehicle maintenance, school expenses, household bills and medical costs
