Australia Bushfire Appeal fundraising

Australia is battling scores of bushfires following a spell of record breaking hot weather. Thousands of residents across South East Australia have been displaced as a result of the devastating bushfires with many losing their homes. Many have seen the heartbreaking images on television and there is an urgent need to provide assistance to the affected people. The Malaysia Australia Business Council (MABC), together with the Malaysia New Zealand Chamber of Commerce (MNZCC), the Malaysia Canada Business Chamber (MCBC) and the American Malaysian Chamber of Commerce (AMCHAM) will do their part in helping the victims by organising the ‘Australia Bushfire Appeal’ fundraising event.
