Summer is fast approaching, bringing with it a high risk of emergencies.
Your donation today will make a real difference for Australians like John, who will face a heatwave, bushfire, flood or cyclone this summer.
John collapsed in last year's heatwaves in Adelaide. When John didn't answer a phone call from Red Cross to check on his wellbeing, Ray, a Red Cross volunteer was sent to check up on him. Ray saw John's distress, called for an ambulance, and stayed until it arrived. Thanks to Ray's fast actions, John made a full recovery and is grateful for the help he received that day.
Will you please help make sure our team has the resources to assist those who'll find themselves at risk or in crisis this coming summer?
