How the Red Cross is responding
Parts of Australia are experiencing unprecedented bushfire activity.
Since July 2019, Red Cross teams have responded to 30 emergencies (some of which have been going for up to 6 weeks) and supported over 18,600 people, through the efforts of more than 1,590 volunteers and staff.
Right now we’re supporting thousands of people in evacuation centres and recovery hubs across Australia.
Our Register.Find.Reunite service, which reunifies people who have been separated in the bushfire emergency, has registered over 30,000 people and taken more than 5,000 enquires.
It’s thanks to people like you.
