Thank You

Thank you for supporting drought-affected farming communities and families.

Thank you for supporting farming families through this extreme drought.

As always, the generosity of Australians shines through.  Thanks to the support of people like you over $1.6 million has been pledged in just over a week. It’s money that’s urgently needed by farming families experiencing severe drought – to help pay for things like household essentials and what they need for their own wellbeing. 

Meet Robert

Funds raised through the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Appeal are being used to enable short-term financial relief arising from drought affecting rural communities.

This may include supporting individual and household health and well-being by making financial support available to meet everyday household expenses as well as helping people access social, health and educational activities.

The funds are being distributed to drought-affected communities working with partner agencies who support and have identified at-risk individuals and families in the affected areas. 

100% of donations go to help farmers, their families and communities, none of the costs associated with the response will be funded from the appeal.
