Red Cross is there for people in need, no matter who you are, no matter where you live.
The Red Cross Red Crescent Movement helps tens of millions of people around the world each year and here at Australian Red Cross, we care for local communities in Australia and further afield.
By running for Red Cross and raising funds, or simply donating, you’ll be bringing hope to people and communities facing the toughest times of their lives:
• $42 will help provide three months of safe drinking water from a water purification plant for two people following an emergency in our region
• $50 will help family members separated by war, conflict and disasters to find each other again. Every year thousands of families lose touch with loved ones caught up in areas of conflict or disaster. Through our worldwide tracing network, Red Cross works to re-establish that contact, by sending messages and clarifying the fate of missing loved ones
• $150 can help recruit, train and retain an emergency services volunteer to help in evacuation centres, do door to door checks, help out in community events after a disaster
• $2500 can help run an evacuation centre providing a safe place for people who have nowhere else to go during a flood, fire or cyclone
