People helping people

That’s what your donation makes possible

Every day around the world, these words are spoken by Red Cross staff and volunteers as they support people through their darkest days:

“You are not alone. We are here to help.”

They are words of comfort for people finding safety in evacuation centres after flooding rains, or standing among the rubble of lives torn apart by earthquakes. They are practical words heard in crowded bomb shelters, refugee camps and detention centres. And they are words of welcome shared with families fleeing conflict and persecution.

Like you, we believe that no-one should have to face a crisis alone. And because you care enough to give, our teams can be ready to act, 365 days a year, wherever we’re needed most.

“The van was getting chucked around like a loose egg. It was traumatising … I [have] had a pacemaker put in and I started to panic. When you get help like that, it brings you to tears… I feel like I’m not on my own.”
