Whenever there’s a disaster your support means Red Cross will be there.

In Australia, we know disasters can happen anywhere, any time. Jill and Amy’s family were safe from the bushfire because they were prepared for the worst.

But we’re worried about many more families in the coming months. Disaster season has already started and the forecast is grim.

Australia is experiencing the worst drought in its history, in addition to intense bushfires and heatwaves, with no end in sight. Climate change is increasing the frequency and severity of disasters.

Help us to support people through a disaster. We have decades of experience in caring for people affected by earthquakes, cyclones, floods, storms, fires, droughts and other emergencies.
