As the country faces an early bushfire season, our teams have been on the ground helping communities in recovery hubs and evacuation centres, and running services to reunite families who’ve been separated.
Not only is the climate crisis causing more frequent and intense disasters, but many people are also finding it more difficult to put food on the table and a roof over their heads. They urgently need your support.
Because generous people like you care, our teams can be there for those hit hardest by disaster, crisis and isolation, providing essential practical and emotional support. Because you care, we can go wherever the needs are greatest.
The simple truth is we can’t do what we do without people like you.
Together, we have the chance to make a difference. Together, we can let people who are struggling know they don’t have to cope alone. No matter what the crisis. No matter how hard the challenges.

You must donate at least $2 and keep proof in the form of a receipt or bank statement. When you donate to Australian Red Cross, we’ll send you a tax receipt. The more you donate, the more you may claim back. Find out more information.
