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 20 November to 18 December 2020, all donations to the International Disaster Fund will support our response to the typhoons and flooding in South-East Asia.
