British Columbia under a state of emergency as wildfires grow.
There are close to 300 wildfires burning in B.C. More than 5,700 people have been evacuated from their homes, while 32,000 are at risk of being evacuated. The village of Lytton has been largely destroyed, and northwest of Kamloops, the Skeetchestn Indian Band reserve has been under ongoing threat of fire reaching their community.
As fires continue to burn, the beautiful British Columbia landscape is in jeopardy and lives are at risk. Those with underlying health risks are especially at risk due to wildfire smoke and poor air quality.
Now is the time to support charities leading relief efforts in British Columbia. Your donation can help provide shelter, food, and long-term recovery support.
