Relief in times of crisis
Whether it's a major natural disaster or a personal crisis in your own home, Red Cross is there to give immediate and practical help.Reaching people in remote places around the world rapidly to provide shelter, food and medical help provides a lifeline. Reaching out to those cut off by flood waters and fire at home reassures and sustains.Re-connecting families or finding out the fate of loved ones torn apart by war or disaster lets people get on with their lives. A hot meal for someone living rough means making a connection when it seems no one else is there to help.We are among the first to arrive and last to leave when disaster strikes, and an important part of our local communities every day.
