Australia thanks Samoa for donation to bushfire response

Ms Moriarty said that Australia was very grateful for the outpouring of support from Samoa for Australia and the Australian people.

“Just as Australia supported Samoa’s response to the measles epidemic, it is comforting to know that Samoa is standing with Australia in our time of need,” she said. “I really appreciate all the kind words from people in the community who have expressed their condolences to me, as well as the efforts to raise funds.”

“This donation from the Government will help support bushfire response and recovery for those who have been badly impacted.
