Committed to its corporate social responsibility policy, BDSwiss Group is joining forces with one of its local liquidity providers to support the Australian Bushfire Crisis Relief efforts.
Dubbing the last day of January as its official charity day, BDSwiss Group has committed to donate 100% of the trading commissions earned on Jan 31st to the NSW Rural Fire Services, to support the volunteer firefighters and the victims of the ongoing bushfire crisis in Australia. The NSW RFS is the world’s largest volunteer firefighting service; however, it’s been widely reported to be underfunded by the Australian government. BDSwiss contribution aims to support the efforts of the NFW and make an impact from the other side of the world.
Australia is currently experiencing its worst-ever bushfire season and sadly counts 25 casualties, 14.5 million acres of scorched land and over 400 million animal lives lost. According to BBC, wildfires in Australia have caused massive devastation across the subcontinent destroying over 6 million hectares of land comprising forests, bush, and parks. Thousands of Australians have been forced out of their homes to find shelter as the area already burned is more than triple the size of the land destroyed by the 2018 California Fires and six times the size of the 2019 fires in the Amazon Rainforest.
Joining in the efforts to help raise funds for the volunteer firefighters and victims of the ongoing Australian bushfire crisis, BDSwiss’ contribution aims to specifically support immediate rescue and relief efforts as the unprecedented bushfires sweep through Australia, as well as long-term recovery and rebuilding of the bushfire-affected communities.
