Over 75% of Australia’s produce relies on pollination from bees, making apiculture one of the most important industries in the nation. And yet, beekeepers are often overlooked during times of natural disaster including drought, fire and flood. To help safeguard our littlest livestock, Rural Aid is working with AHBIC and Hive & Wellness to provide financial and practical support to professional beekeepers.
Just like larger livestock, bees need fodder to keep doing their jobs. Through Hive Aid, professional beekeepers can receive a $500 prepaid visa card to use in their community, $1,500 to spend on bills, and an additional $1,500 Beekeeper Support Card to use on fuel and fodder for bees.
About Rural Aid
Rural Aid is one of Australia’s largest rural charities. Well known for the highly successful ‘Buy a Bale’ campaign, the charity also provides financial assistance, water and counselling to farmers in times of drought, flood or fire. Other initiatives support its vision that farming and rural communities are safeguarded to ensure their sustainability both during and after these natural disasters.
Australian farmers produce almost 93% of Australia’s daily domestic food supply. When a natural disaster impacts farmers, it affects all of us. Many of the farmers that Rural Aid assists have not had an income in years, and yet they work tirelessly each day to keep their farms going.
