Donations received for the Australian Drought Appeal are now redirected to ADRA’s Disaster Preparedness and Relief fund, to assist when disasters strike in Australia and overseas.
Deadly disasters often strike without warning, affecting the most vulnerable people least able to cope. With such a strong global presence across more than 120 countries, ADRA’s network is well-placed to help in times of need. When people need us, we’re already there. ADRA has a strong record responding to mega disasters, like the recent tsunami in Indonesia and the super typhoon earthquake in Philippines. We also assist in local disasters, such as the drought affecting rural and regional Australia.
By donating before a disaster hits, you’re helping by ensuring ADRA is in the best position so that we’re ready to help right away. Our work includes not only immediate disaster relief, but also longer-term recovery and disaster risk reduction activities.
Thank you for your generosity this Christmas. Your gift could mean the world to to a neighbour in need.
