Help us help peo­ple

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

A GROW­ING num­ber of our neigh­bours will face a lonely win­ter with as many as 7 per cent, or 1.5 mil­lion Aus­tralians pre­dicted to be con­sid­ered iso­lated or very iso­lated this year.

Hav­ing friends around us makes us more re­silient to life’s knocks.

Red Cross helps peo­ple of all ages who are do­ing it tough.

We help iso­lated peo­ple re­con­nect with their com­mu­ni­ties by as­sist­ing them to join so­cial groups and build new friend­ships.

We help peo­ple who are home­less­ness or at risk of be­com­ing home­less, those with men­tal health is­sues and dis­ad­van­taged fam­i­lies who want a bet­ter fu­ture for their chil­dren.

Across the Asia Pa­cific re­gion, we are work­ing to pro­vide clean drink­ing wa­ter and bet­ter san­i­ta­tion, and help rebuild lives af­ter ma­jor dis­as­ters.

All of our work re­lies heav­ily on the gen­eros­ity of peo­ple like you who do­nate to Red Cross.

To make a tax de­ductible do­na­tion call 1800 811 700, go on­line or use your smart­phone to go to our web­site at red­cross.org.au.
