Iconic Sydney Opera House Lights Up with Tribute to Australian Firefighters

Author : Odisha Today Bureau | Posted on: 2020-01-13

The iconic Sydney Opera House acknowledged the efforts of Australian firefighters over the weekend with a moving tribute. The sails of the Sydney Opera House lit up with touching images of volunteer firefighters in support of bushfire affected communities.



 

The projections were a tribute to the firefighters and communities who have suffered through months of searing temperatures and smoke. One of the images is by Wolter Peeters in Yarravel on NSW’s far north coast of a simple handmade sign that says “thank you firies”. Australia is having the worst fire season in its history.


 

At least 27 people, including volunteer firefighters, have died since the start of the fire season in late July, more than 2,000 homes have been destroyed or damaged, and entire cities have been forced to evacuate. The Sydney Opera House also announced that it will hold a fundraiser for a comedy gala in March for the benefit of communities affected by the fires.
