Megazyme committed €50,000 to the Red Cross fund at the Irish Australian Chamber of Commerce ‘Australia Day 2020 Corporate Lunch’ held at Croke Park on 24th January 2020. Prof. The Australian Ambassador Richard Andrews thanked Prof Barry McCleary, CEO of Megazyme for the donation.
Australia is being ravaged by the worst wildfires seen in decades, with large swaths of the country devastated since the fire season began in late July.
At least 28 people have died nationwide, and in the state of New South Wales (NSW) alone, more than 3,000 homes have been destroyed or damaged. State and federal authorities are struggling to contain the massive blazes, even with firefighting assistance from other countries, including the United States.
How can I help?
Donations can be made to several organizations working toward victim relief and recovery, including the Australian Red Cross, Salvation Army Australia, the NSW Rural Fire Service, and the St. Vincent de Paul Society Australia.
You can also help the devastated animal population by giving to wildlife rescue and treatment groups like WIRES, the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital, and Currumbin Wildlife Hospital.
