Although Vancouver Island is no longer feeling its effects, hundreds of wildfires continue to rage across British Columbia.

In their wake, thousands of individuals and families have had to evacuate their homes, and the impact of the 2018 fires will be felt for months to come.

Therefore, the Canadian Red Cross has launched an appeal for donations to help them take care of people who have been affected by the wildfires, and make sure they recover from the disaster as quickly as possible.

“Donations to the Canadian Red Cross will be used for immediate and ongoing relief efforts, long term recovery, resiliency and preparedness for future events in British Columbia and Yukon, including consequential events related to the fires,” reads the website.
