What we do
In recent years, Australians have suffered many disasters along with on going issues. Australian government is proactive in helping its public through different schemes, but still there are many unfortunates who could not get required help due to red tape-ism and budget constraints. There are many organisations who are filling this gap. We are here to help these extraordinary anonymous helpers working for following causes
Corona Pandemic Victims
Corona pandemic has brought the world to its knees. There has been unprecedented loss of human life along with collapse of world economy. Only in Australia more that 1 millions people have lost their job due to collapse of economy. There are many organisations which are helping these victims of pandemic and we are helping these helper with fund raising
Australia saw some of worst flood in 2019 and 2020 in different parts of country. People lost their lives and thousand have to be evacuated. These people lost their houses, business and farms in these floods. Some residents won a class action but many are still struggling to their life back on track. These victims are supported by many good not-for-profit organisations and we are helping these angels.
Domestic Violence Victims
1 in 6 women and 1 in 16 men have experienced domestic violence in form of physical or sexual abuse. Cases of domestic violence has increased since the onset of Covid-19 pandemic. Every year, more than 20,000 take shelter in women's refuges. The situation is much worse than what it looks from the numbers. Often these domestic violence survivors have lost everything and need huge support to stand back on their feet. Organisations help these victims with counselling, shelters and finance. Smiling Square help these organisation with fund raising.
Bush fire happens every summer in Australia but 2019 bush fire hits world news for all the wrong reasons. This catastrophe effected the 2/3 of Australians directly and indirectly. Thousands of people lost their homes, farms and livelihood. A huge fund was raised for the bush-fire victims but getting it to the right people of taking time due complex processes. We are helping the organisations which are at ground helping the actual victims.
Millennium drought which happens from 2001 to 2009 was most severe of the all the droughts. It effected southwestern and southeastern Australia most and was caused by poor rainfall during the cool season. These drought still continue in different parts of Australia. These drought hits most to the farmers who need water for livestock and irrigation. Last year grass bails were donated from all over the country to drought hit farmers and we are helping these organisation with funding.
Sexual Grooming Victims
The victims of sexual grooming are children and teenager from the age of 10 to 20. Often the victims are not aware of their sexual exploitation. The culprits are known to victims and difficult to be caught. A vast of majority of offenses are never reported cause of social shame and long court processes. Children are left with lifetime trauma. These victims need extensive counselling, support and protection to start a normal life. We help the organisations involved in the welfare of victims of sexual grooming
