The pandemic and the uncertainty of the last few years have shown the value of community, connecting with loved ones and having people around us who support and help us get through difficult times. At Red Cross we know there are too many people who don’t have this support. Who find themselves alone or at a loss of who to turn to when things get tough.
We are there for them.
For a mother seeking her children who she lost in the chaos of war.
For an older man living alone, who can’t get out and about and has little social connection.
For a family who has lost everything in a bushfire.
For a woman who arrives in Australia as a refugee, knowing no-one.
For a young man leaving prison who wants to live a better life.
Our network of volunteers, members and staff stand up for and stand by these people. We connect them with the support they need to live the life they want.
If you’re lucky enough to have the support of family, friends and colleagues, we’re calling on you to act. Bring your network together and raise funds so that others don’t have to be alone.
