You can volunteer with Red Cross in Asia, Africa and the Pacific.
The Australian Volunteers for International Development program continues a tradition of voluntary service for Australian Red Cross that began in 1914. Through volunteers, we aim to help the most disadvantaged people in Asia, Africa and the Pacific to achieve healthier, safer and more sustainable lives.
Our 100 years of experience tell us that solutions robust enough to work are often found locally. That's why our work is squarely aimed at creating stronger and more effective local organisations. Our partner organisations engage Australian Volunteers to strengthen their work and serve their communities.
Our volunteers are health workers, fire fighters, horticulturists, marketers, accountants, social workers and more. They are trained, professional and committed. They enable us to mobilise more of the power of humanity, more often.
