Farmers are facing ruin across New South Wales and Queensland in what some are calling the worst drought in living memory, with costs of stock feed and transport spiralling.

If you would like to know how you can help, you can contact the following charities:

    •    Australian Red Cross
    •    Rural Aid / Buy a Bale
    •    Drought Angels
    •    Aussie Helpers
    •    Lions Need for Feed
    •    Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal
    •    Salvation Army

Large swathes of eastern Australia have been in drought for periods ranging from a year to seven years, with the record dry conditions prompting calls for further federal and state measures.
