Right now, Red Cross is expanding and adapting its programs to meet the unique demands of a world responding to the coronavirus (COVID-19).
We are scaling up welfare calls to thousands of people in isolation. A phone call with a Red Cross volunteer trained in Psychological First Aid can turn someone’s day around – helping them cope, stay calm, and endure this difficult time.
We are looking to increase our existing meals delivery and transport services for people who are elderly, live with a disability or are unwell.
Importantly, we’re doing everything we can to ensure the humanitarian needs of Australia’s most vulnerable people are met – from migrants and refugees starting a new life in Australia, to teenagers facing homelessness, to communities recovering from disaster.
You can help Red Cross be there, no matter what.
