For just $1 a day, you can transform the lives of people living in poverty, conflict and isolation.
Every day Red Cross volunteers and trained staff work with families and communities to bring care and support where it's needed most. The people Red Cross supports come from all walks of life: Australians who are isolated and elderly; children going to school hungry; communities suffering in the wake of a disaster, or struggling to get by without clean water.
By signing up to make a monthly donation, you will enable Red Cross to be there - bringing comfort, shelter and support for the long-term, throughout Australia and across our region.
Daily phone calls
"Not to hear any voice for 12 hours a day. It's hard, when you are on your own and no-one with you… I haven't got my family here, so these people are my family. They are caring for me, looking after me, remembering me."
Now that Maher is living alone, his daily call from Red Cross provides him with a connection back to the wider society and peace of mind that, if something happened to him, Red Cross would be there. When Maher's wife Margarite was still alive, their daily phone call from Red Cross arrived just as they were facing a medical emergency, helping them to arrange an ambulance.
By giving a monthly donation, your help will ensure thousands of people receive a daily phone call to check they are ok.
"We were shown so much care. When you feel devastated, to be cared for like that means so much. All the volunteers in the centre really connected with us; the sense of support and community was so important."
As soon as a disaster strikes Red Cross is there providing thousands of people with support in their journey towards recovery, including people like Margaret and Vince, who lost their home in the 2013 New South Wales bush fires.
Whenever you see a Red Cross person in action you will know that your monthly donation has played an important role in activating a Red Cross emergency response.
Every 20 seconds a child dies as a result of poor sanitation.
Unsafe water, together with poor sanitation, is a major cause of death and disease in the world's poorest countries, and it can be prevented.
Red Cross empowers communities across the Asia Pacific region to prevent this suffering by improving water and sanitation systems.
Through your monthly donation, for just $1 a day, you will be helping vulnerable people throughout the region receive clean water and sanitation and reduce the devastating impact of waterborne diseases in these communities.
