Ottawa, Canada, January 13th 2020 – The South and East coasts of Australia are currently being ravaged by some of the worst bushfires in living memory. Lives have been lost, with homes and wildlife being destroyed as high temperatures and winds have swept the fires across the country. Like many other companies, Ross has an office and employees in the region, as well as hundreds of partners, customers, family members and friends whose lives are being affected by this appalling natural disaster.
As a gesture of support to everyone affected, Ross is making a donation to Australia’s Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR), an organization that supports not-for-profit and community initiatives. Their Disaster Resilience and Recovery Fund has been established to help communities once the fires have passed, and we feel this donation will directly help rebuild regions and towns that have suffered so badly. “It’s impossible not to be shocked by the images we’ve seen from Australia”, notes David Ross, CEO of Ross Video. “Moments like this compel us to help where we can, and our thoughts are with the people of Australia at this most difficult time”.

We are also deeply saddened to learn of the Ukraine International Airlines crash last week in which two of our educational partners lost five community members. Our thoughts are with the families, friends and colleagues at @uOttawa and @Carleton_U and all those who have lost loved ones in this terrible tragedy.
