Australian Red Cross

Relief in times of crisis, care when it's needed most and commitment when others turn away. Red Cross is there for people in need, no matter who you are, no matter where you live. We help tens of millions of people around the world each year and care for local communities in Australia and Asia Pacific. With millions of volunteers worldwide and 60,000 members and volunteers in Australia we can reach people and places like nobody else.   INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMS Through our partnerships with many other Red Cross Red Crescent National Societies around the world, we work to promote safer, healthier and more sustainable lives for people in developing countries, particularly in the Asia Pacific region. Placing people at the heart of our work, we help to build resilient communities by strengthening National Society partners in their planning for effective disaster preparedness, and in their response and early recovery capacity. We are also increasing our commitment to health programming (including water, sanitation, community health and HIV) in the Asia Pacific region.   DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS Australian Red Cross is committed to building healthier and safer communities. Placing people at the heart of our work, we help to create resilient communities and build strong regional Red Cross partners. The majority of our international programs are run in the Asia Pacific region. This diverse region is home to almost two thirds of the world's population. It is prone to natural disasters and has areas of entrenched poverty and disadvantage. Asia region. Our programs in the Asia region focus on community health, preparing for and recovering from disasters and developing the skills of our regional partners. Pacific region.
