Greater Mogo Area is still reeling since the devastating NYE firestorm that ripped through the small community.
The organisers behind the Greater Mogo Fire Recovery group say "Our community were making a come back after the fires where we could meet, communicate and organise but since social distancing our efforts on the ground have ground to a halt with only a small percentage of the recovery required having begun. This is a statistic no-one wants to share. But it helps shed light on the gravity of the STILL ONGOING situation: people lost their homes, their properties, their sense of safety and security, and their illusions about government assistance. That's a tough blow."
"And now with coronavirus, the community is isolated even further at literally the worst possible time. "The goal of Greater Mogo Fire Recovery group is to gather a register of what can be done to help Greater Mogo area residents that have been affected by the fires and then use all the resources available to get it done. This includes temporary solutions while waiting for insurance claims to be processed etc." "Please, remember Mogo. Sign up to donate or volunteer today! We'll find a job for you, either now (online or phone) or later.💚" "There is a lot of well intentioned help being offered to our area at the moment however there is little organisation, focus or clear communication. We hope to resolve this by having a register for volunteers as well as for residents who have skills, tool, time etc. to help rebuild their community." "Anyone and everyone from the greater Mogo area is welcome to join us!" FOR MORE INFORMATION : Visit the WEBSITE HERE Everyone in Mogo is encouraged to visit the Mogo Notice Board as it updated.
