It is an honour and privilege to be the CEO of Australian Red Cross at this time as we prepare to celebrate 100 years of service to the Australian community.
Thursday December 19, 2013
More than 200 Red Cross youth leaders came from all parts of the world for the 2013 Global Youth Conference held in Sydney in November.
A pivotal milestone in our history, our Centenary year is a story about the extraordinary generosity and compassion of everyday Australians, and an opportunity to thank the millions of people who have supported our humanitarian work so generously over the past century.
Our strength today remains our people.
This year around one million Australians (including over 500,000 blood donors) committed their time, expertise, funds and support to Red Cross to help vulnerable people, families and communities. Over 116,000 monthly donors generously supported our vital work. They are people like you whose care and commitment makes a positive, lasting impact everyday.
