Water keeps us healthy and clean. After a disaster or epidemic, one of the most important needs for a community is access to safe drinking water. Your gift can provide families with two buckets that hold 28L of water, essential for washing everyday items, as well as for parents to bathe their children. Thank you.
Where your money goes
Your tax-deductible gift supports our international work helping people to stay safe and healthy during and after disasters and epidemics, which includes shelter, health, and the protection of vulnerable people.

“At that time we had no pots or anything to cook with so Red Cross gave us kitchen utensils, pots, plates. They gave us everything we need to prepare food. They also gave us shelter kits, a white bucket that had soap and other things, toilet paper, razor to shave.” – Jack.
Jack and his young family had to evacuate with nothing when a volcano eruption destroyed their home in Vanuatu. Once they’d reached a safe area, Red Cross provided families with some basic essentials to maintain their health and dignity.
