With your support, our local partners on the ground can respond when an emergency strikes.
Caritas Australia is part of one of the world's largest humanitarian networks, Caritas Internationalis.
In an emergency, rapid response is crucial. Without urgent assistance, communities hit by pandemics and disasters are vulnerable to hunger, disease and even loss of life.
We work in partnership with local organisations and Church networks to supply urgent hygiene kits, Personal Protective Equipment, sanitation, prevention education and cash assistance to communities in need. Using our local networks, we are able to reach as many people as possible, including those living in the most remote and marginalised communities.
This urgent relief work can only happen with your help. Your donation today can help support emergency response efforts in the most vulnerable communities around the world.
The funds raised through all our emergency appeals will be used to provide immediate and longer-term humanitarian assistance to communities affected by crises across the world. If any excess funds remain after a crisis, or if there are changes in circumstances beyond our control that limit our ability to use the funds, they are kept in the Emergency Response Appeal so that we can respond to ongoing needs and future crises across all our regions.
