In the past year we’ve supported people on the worst day of their life, when they’re facing a crisis, when they’re feeling down and when they can’t catch a break. Because when we’re there for people facing tough times, we help them find their own strength to build on.
Here’s what we achieved in the past year.
Helping in emergencies and disasters
In the past year we supported 64,763 Australians affected by emergencies and disasters. We showed people how to get prepared, we provided personal support at the scene and made follow-up visits in the weeks afterwards.
We provided support in response to 51 emergencies in Australia in the past year, including fires, floods and cyclones. We also sent 87 aid workers to support emergency operations in 36 countries.
