Waitaki District Council is working with partner agencies to assist those affected by the wildfire at Lake Ohau in October 2020



Ohau Fire Mayoral Emergency Relief Fund

We are very grateful for all the offers of donated goods to help support the families who have lost their homes in the Lake Ohau fire. At this stage we have been able to supply their immediate needs from what has already been given so we are not seeking further donations of goods.

We know that many people would still like to offer tangible help, so a Ohau Fire Mayoral Emergency Relief Fund has been established. If you would like to donate to the fund to support those affected by the Ohau Fires, the bank account is:

  • Bank account:  02 0940 0156400 000​
  • Ref: Ohau​​

If you are a resident affected by the Ohau fire you can apply to the Ohau Fire Mayoral Emergency Relief Fund:
