A charity has coordinated the delivery of 32 generators to Mogo residents and small businesses.
The United Arab Emirates donated over 400 generators to be shared across bushfire-affected communities, and Resilience NSW and the National Bushfire Recovery Agency provided the generators, a spokesperson said.
GIVIT NSW regional manager Caroline Odgers coordinated the delivery of the generators to Mogo Village Business Chamber president Richard Adams.
The national online charity connects donors with people in need, and has focused relief support on bushfire-affected communities, including from the Shoalhaven down to the Bega Valley.
Ms Odgers said GIVIT's focus was to ensure no resident or bushfire-affected community was forgotten.
"Recovery is a long process," Ms Odgers said. "GIVIT's service is a crucial component of recovery to ensure communities, charities and local business are supported long term.
"While we love providing large items like beds, fridges and replacement equipment for farmers, some bushfire-affected communities are still in the clean-up stage. That's why donations of generators, grocery vouchers and simple hardware tools are still so important."
GIVIT says it has coordinated 100,000+ donated items for bushfire-affected regions across the state since January 2020, as part of the partnership with the NSW Government. Most items included water tanks, hardware tools, generators and everyday household items for southern NSW towns and remote communities.
All donated funds GIVIT receives goes to purchase urgent and essential items for Australians in need, and are spent with local businesses whenever possible. The GIVIT team has spent over $100,000 with local businesses as part of providing essential and everyday items to people in need.
"GIVIT encourages all charities and community groups supporting bushfire-affected communities to register with GIVIT for free, so they too can request and receive specific items their communities need," a spokesperson said. "GIVIT is a national online charity that connects generous Aussies who want to donate items, services or cash with people in need."
