International Disaster Fund

The International Disaster Fund enables Australian Red Cross and our partners to help people overseas in the event of a disaster or crisis. 

Start Fundraising

The funds you raise towards our International Disaster Fund will enable Red Cross teams to help people overseas prepare for a crisis, have emergency response teams in places hit hard by disasters and conflict and to support people affected by crises to recover safely and with dignity. 
From 7 September to 31 October 2022 all donations to the International Disaster Fund will support the International Federation of the Red Cross response to the flooding in Pakistan.
