The town of Buchan in the East Gippsland region of Victoria was scorched by the 2019/20 Black Summer bushfires. In the midst of regrowth the charred skeletons of trees still scar the hillscape. The trauma and grief of losing everything in a violent, burning wave still lingers.
In the fallout of the fires, Bushfire Recovery Bush Chaplain Peter Harvey has been devoted to supporting the region. As part of his outreach, he has witnessed extraordinary resilience and determination.
