When Red Cross calls, Australia answers.

This March, we're calling on you to get involved in Red Cross Calling. Whether you donate your time or money, you'll be helping people overcome crisis across Australia and further afield.

For 70 years, Red Cross has called on Australians to dig deep and support our vital work. We need people across the nation to help us spread the word. The more people who get involved, the more money we can raise, and the more people we can help.

So will you answer the call?

Who will you be helping?

We want to be able to answer the call when someone is in need. Thanks to people like you, we can. Your generosity helps us to respond in times of disaster, provide clean drinking water in a remote Pacific village, or help an elderly Australian to overcome crisis.

Here are some stories from people who Red Cross was able to help, thanks to people like you.

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.
