Assistance – Drought Aid

Coles Drought Assistance

In October 2018, Coles and its customers contributed more than $459,000 to the Country Women’s Association of Western Australia to help drought-affected farmers, growers and producers who are experiencing hardship as a result of the drought.  As funds are still available, Coles has granted permission for the CWA of WA to reopen the grant application process.

Commonwealth Drought Assistance

The CWA of WA gratefully acknowledges a $100,000 drought grant by the Commonwealth Government through the Department of Industry, Innovation, and Science.  The purpose of the grant is to provide drought relief funding to distribute immediate financial assistance to farmers and farming families who are facing hardship arising from the impact of drought in identified drought affected areas.

Other Donations

Generous donations have been received by CWA members and branches, other organisations and the general public.  We thank everyone for their compassion and desire to help others in need at these difficult seasonal times.
