Australia has recently been ambushed by a massive fire leaving roughly 2,000 homes destroyed and the wildlife burned and fleeing for their lives. Although many were left in devastation, there are people around the world who have donated to help the survivors.
Currently, there are many who are making an effort to stop the fire, including firefighters, athletes, and even ordinary people. According to Chris Bengel, CBS writer, “Nine Australian NBA players have partnered with the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) and the NBA to donate $750,000 that will go towards relief and recovery efforts throughout the country.¨
Also, according to The Washington Post, back in 2018, many Australian firefighters came to help fight the blazing fires in California. Now that Australia is in trouble, more than 100 California firefighters have come to help and return the favor. Due to the strong relationship between these two nations, they are likely to help each other out in times of need.
