How we help overseas reflects what we do in Australia every day. We help people cope with disasters and crises, reunite families separated by war and conflict, promote better health and wellbeing, and protect people in war and conflict.

We're part of the largest humanitarian network in the world, with a local presence in almost every country on earth. We'd like you to be part of it too.
