Helix Australia sister company Wafex has organised a fund raiser to assist flower growers impacted by the devastating fires in Australia.
"As bushfires continue to threaten many regions across Australia, we are sad to hear of the losses to those in our industry including some of the Wafex grower family and the wider flower community. We are thankful for the work of the Fire & Emergency Services and others that have tirelessly been working in the affected areas to minimise the loss of property, life and wildlife", the company shares in an update.
"Like everyone we have wondered what we can do to help and we have decided to dedicate our efforts to helping the Flower Growers directly impacted by the fires as it is close to our hearts. We are seeking cash donations and donations of flowers or plants – please contact us to arrange donations."
Alternatively, you can deposit into the following account – please reference “Bushfire” and contact the company to let them know.
