NO MACEDONIAN VICTIMS OF AUSTRALIAN WILDFIRES



National.

There are no Macedonians among the victims in the Australia wildfires, said Ico Najdovski, secretary of the Macedonian community in Australian federal state of Victoria.

"Information reported in certain media that a four-member Macedonia family was killed in the fires is not true. There are damages, but no Macedonian casualties thus far", stated Najdovski.

Monastery "St. Kliment Ohridski" in area King Lake was burnt to the ground. Victoria emigrants have already launched activities for reconstruction of the first Macedonian monastery abroad, built in 1973.

Australian federal state of Victoria is almost entirely hit by the wildfires in the past 4-5 days. Temperatures have risen up to 48C, accompanied by strong winds up to 100kmh. The death toll has surpassed 180, along with 750 houses and 400,000 hectares of forests burnt.

That is good no one perished in the fires. 181 dead and could rise.
My husband is Macedonian and we have been to the Monastery In king Lake. As an Australian I am sure all Australians have put and are still donating money and goods to all victims of the fires. This ia a very sad time for all fellow Australians. The appeal from donations so far is above $60 Million we have donated and even small school age children are donating from there own money boxes. In times such as this it makes you very proud to be an Austrlian, especially when money is scarce because of the current financial problems. Alot of Australians are out of work and still have the heart to donate.

Well done Australians

1831 homes destroyed and 7,000 people displaced no homes totally gut wrenching. Kinglake 15oo homes destroyed, majority were from this area.

Our hearts are with everyone - the survivors, the fire fighters, the volunteers, families and friends, and also the fund raisers.
Hope lives in one and all to see these people get back their strength. Sadness for our wildlife and flora. God is good, he will help us rebuild.
