Disaster relief 

 and recovery 

Support communities to rebuild after a disaster and assist people to get prepared before disaster strikes. When there’s a crisis anywhere in the world, you can ensure there’s someone to help. 

Start Fundraising

The funds you raise towards our Disaster Relief and Recovery work will help us to ensure we have trained volunteers, aid workers and staff ready to respond as soon as a disaster strikes in Australia and overseas.

Your funds will also help us to prepare people for any emergency, by making a plan that’s right for them and their family, wherever they live and whatever risks they face.
