It is with deepest sorry that I write this, for as many of you will know Victoria has been hit with the worst bushfires in living history.  The devastation is beyond comprehension, no words or really even pictures can express it totally.

There are at present 130 people confirmed dead.  Tragic as this is and the number is sure to rise when authorities can get into the outer areas, the cost on animal life is beyond counting.   Thousands of wild and domestic animals have perished or are injured.

Please help, one dollar will make a difference and if that is beyond your means, I totally understand but please pray for all who have suffered beyond comprehension.

At least two of the major fires were deliberately lit, again beyond comprehension that anyone could feel power, as the pyscharists say, from such a terrible act which has devastated so many lives, both human and animals.

I will not go into details it is more than any person should hear or see but if you can help please do so.

For animals the url is  http://www.wildlifevictoria.org.au/cms/index.php

For humans the url is  www.redcross.org.au

I know everyone on Care does care, so as I said if you cannot help with a small donation, please offer your prays and send love and comforting thoughts, everything will help.

I am sorry, I cannot write more I am too overcome

Love and thank you
Mary
