We’ll be calling on you soon, will you answer?

For 70 years, Red Cross has called on Australians to dig deep and support our work.

Soon we'll be calling on you once again to get involved and help raise money during Red Cross Calling.

Get ready to answer the call in 2019!

How Red Cross Calling helps

We want to be able to answer the call when someone is in need. That's why we need people like you. When you donate your time or support you help us to do all the amazing things we do in Australia and right around the world. It could help us support families in times of disaster, provide clean drinking water in a remote Pacific village, or help an elderly Australian living alone.

Here are some stories from people who Red Cross was able to help.

Jean's Story

Genocide forced Jean to flee Rwanda as a child, and later as a lawyer, his life in Africa was threatened. He fled to Australia for safety – and is thankful to a local couple for helping him settle.

Jan's Story

When Jan was diagnosed with cancer, she drove the arduous trip to and from hospital herself. But exhausted and nauseated from chemo, it soon became impossible.

John's Story

John’s life was turned upside down when Cyclone Debbie hit and the subsequent floods swept his small business. A Red Cross emergency volunteer checked in on him and made him realise someone cared.
