We’ll be there no matter what.

Times are tough, but that’s why we need your support.

Thank you

For 106 years, Red Cross has been there. We’re still working on helping Australians impacted by the Black Summer bushfires. We also know that there are other people who need support. From those in our community who need a friendly ear and much needed chat, to those newly arrived on Aussie shores who need support settling into their new home, we’re there every day to help.

Each year we make more than a million phone calls to people who are isolated. We’ve ramped up that effort to include people who need a bit of extra support during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This year, you helped us raise an incredible $2,094,115. This will help us continue our work in communities across Australia and internationally.

Here are stories from people Red Cross helps

Aunty Carol

Connecting through a yarn, a laugh and sometimes a good cry is universal. Aunty Carol knows that well.


Tracy has a full-time office job, which she took time off from to help support those affected by the bushfires.


It’s a phone call Elie and his family waited years for. They waited so long that when it finally came, Elie couldn’t believe it. His mum screamed “Elie, it’s happening!” They were going to a new home – Australia.
