Acoufelt donates to support authorities during Australian fire disaster

In 2019/20 when two natural disasters joined; drought and unprecedented wild fires strikes
in Australia, Acoufelt wanted to find means to help the individuals facing such disaster. A number of early response teams launched into action to aid locals affected by the fires, with Rapid Relief Team (RRT) being one of them. Acoufelt made the decision to donate $25,000 to RRT in support.

“We are a family business, not a soulless corporate. The common values of our wider
family run inextricably through the values of the Acoufelt brand” says Ben Grace, Global Managing Director. “When we see what these extreme weather occurrences can do, we don’t see statistics, we see the devastation of families. Families like yours; families like mine.

Our thoughts and prayers go to our customers, families and friends affected by the current fire and drought disaster in Australia. From the Acoufelt company, team and family, we are announcing that we have made a small donation of $25,000 to Rapid Relief Team Australia, who are supporting the authorities tackling this tragic and unprecedented situation. A huge thankyou to the firefighters who are putting their lives at risk to protect ours.”. 

The response from Acoufelt was to financially support the Rapid Relief Team and challenge suppliers, customers, partners and friends to do the same.

The Rapid Relief Team is helping the people affected by these horrific wild fires in Australia across states and territories. Their international mantra is “Serving people with care and compassion in times of need”. Shelters are open, truckloads of supplies are being distributed and volunteers continue to work around the clock as they face this continuing situation in the coming months.
