X22MKGPW - Disaster

Be one of the helpers


Natural disasters directly affected 1.7 billion people around the world in the last decade and our Asia Pacific region is by far the most disaster-prone region in the world.

Thanks to supporters like you, our trained emergency response teams are on standby, ready to help at a moment’s notice. And for people going through other crises – like the impacts of conflict or isolation – you can ensure they, too, have somewhere to turn, 365 days a year.

We are hands-on help


Every year, Red Cross teams help millions of people through the impacts of disaster, isolation and forced migration. Because, like you, we believe no one should go through crisis alone. From the flood-affected towns in the south east and central west, to the remote communities of our Top End, to the conflict in Eastern Europe, we are there.

365 days a year.

Neutral and impartial.

People helping people, no matter what, to find safety, opportunity, friendship and hands-on help in a crisis.

We can’t do it without you. Your generosity can give people somewhere safe to turn.

Here's what your gift can do:

$50 can help train an emergency volunteer to support people through the trauma of a natural disaster.

$150 can provide daily welfare calls to an isolated older person for three months, helping them to feel safe, connected and valued.
$500 can kick-start a global search for missing family members, separated in the chaos of war, disaster or migration.
