Muslim group are praised for travelling 200kms to donate 36,000 bottles of water to firefighters and bushfire victims

The 'water boys' from Synergy Scaffolding Services loaded up trucks with 20 pallets of water and headed down to NSW's Shoalhaven region on Friday from Sydney.

Hawzah News Agency - (Sydney - Australia) - A group of Muslims have donated 36,000 water bottles to struggling firefighters who continue to battle vicious blazes.

The 'water boys' from Synergy Scaffolding Services loaded up trucks with 20 pallets of water and headed down to NSW's Shoalhaven region on Friday from Sydney.

Synergy spokeswoman Marie told Australia that the idea came to boss Sam Soukie when he heard someone had traveled down with only a bottle filled with water.

'Sam said, ''We’ve got trucks, we should do the right thing, people are suffering,' Marie explained.

'The company went out and purchased the 20 pallets of water and used two Synergy trucks to drive down bushfire affected areas.'

The water will be distributed to areas that don't have access to clean water.

A firefighter escort was also used to lead the trucks through dangerous areas to ensure everyone could get their hands on the water.

'It’s so beautiful seeing the communities get together and help each other the true Australian way,' Marie said.

'There are broken communities, everyone’s lost their homes, giving back just a tiny bit is worth every moment.'
