Red Cross ramps up emergency work

Red Cross is expanding its work helping bushfire-affected communities to recover, as well as expanding its cash grants to people who have lost their homes in the bushfires since July 2019. Acting Chief Executive Noel Clement said the Red Cross Disaster Response and Recovery Fund had received more than $31 million since New Year’s Eve.

“Australians and indeed people around the world have shown extraordinary generosity in donating to the fund, which will mean we can scale up our work helping communities recover from these devastating fires across multiple states,” he said.
