This home and many others were lost in a devastating bushfire that swept through this rural village in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales, Australia, on November 8. Alex is one of the lucky few who got to keep his home and has returned to help with the cleanup efforts in the region.

More than one million hectares have burned across New South Wales so far during this bushfire season, with conditions predicted to worsen as Australia heads into summer. Despite the devastation, it has been heartwarming to see the community come together and support each other. The emotional drain on communities affected by the bushfires must be unfathomable. If this is any indication of what’s to come, we all need to help each other in whatever way we can. #Australia #Australianbushfires #nswfires #nymboida #nsw
