About Amazon Australia Disaster Relief
Amazon Australia is committed to supporting communities impacted by natural disasters including drought, fire and flood. During the devastating bushfires that swept the nation earlier this year, Amazon Australia supported national relief efforts including donating much needed items to organisations on the front line. We fulfilled charity Wish Lists and provided cash donations to relief agencies including the Australian Red Cross, the Salvation Army Australia, WIRES, and Rural and Country Fire Services around the country.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) provided in-kind technical support for many of the government agencies dealing with the response and recovery efforts including Geoscience and Digital Earth Australia, the Bureau of Meteorology, and state agencies such as Land Gate (WA), the Rural Fire Service (NSW), Fires Near Me app, SAFECOM (SA), and the South Australian Department Planning, Transport, and Infrastructure.
