FARM WEEKLY | Grain Producers Australia announces charities selected for #AUSSIEGRAIN4UKRAINE appeal


AUSTRALIAN graingrowers have chosen the charities that will help deliver humanitarian support for Ukrainian farmers and their communities, from grain donated from this year's harvest.


The #AUSSIEGRAIN4UKRAINE appeal was announced earlier this year with a farmer-led Grain Producers Australia (GPA) sub-committee formed to drive the fundraising campaign.


The sub-committee has now approved the UN Crisis Relief's Ukraine Humanitarian Fund and World Vision Ukraine Appeal to provide targeted support for farming families and communities in need.


The World to Rebuild Rural Ukraine program has also been chosen to specifically help rural communities and farms with rebuilding efforts, and Oxfam International.


Sub-committee spokesman and Cunderdin grower David Fulwood said a number of suggestions were received and assessed by the sub-committee with these four charities determined to be the most effective for delivering real support.
