Refugees &

Asylum Seekers 

in Crisis Appeal 

Every day, refugees and asylum seekers living in Australia are struggling to make ends meet.

Start Fundraising

We see families living on just one meal a day. Parents unable to afford their children’s medicine. Young men sleeping on the street.

Fundraise to help them cope as they search for work or make important decisions about their lives.

How your donations help...


can provide a public transport card to help someone get to job interviews and medical appointments


could provide groceries for a family of four for a week


could pay for one month of casework support for someone who needs it


covers quarterly electricity and gas bills for a family in winter


could help a family unable to find work afford a roof over their heads until their situation improves

*Should the funds raised exceed the amount required to meet the emergency needs of people in affected areas or if there are changes in circumstances beyond Red Cross' control, Red Cross will direct excess funds to responding to other crises and resilience.
