Lizzo has taken a moment away from playing gigs in Australia to lend a helping hand as the country endures its worst bushfire crisis.

The “Juice” singer has spent time volunteering at Melbourne’s Foodbank on Wednesday, assisting with packaging food hampers for those who have been affected by Australia’s devastating fires, as Huff Post reports.

Foodbank Australia has also set up a page on its website where Lizzo’s fans can find out how to make a difference during Australia’s bushfire season.

Australia’s 2019/2020 bushfire season death toll stands at 25, while 10.3 million hectares of land has been burnt, and 1 billion animals are said to have died.
