Disaster Relief Australia is seeking volunteers
When the fires are out and the emergency response subsides, that’s when communities affected by natural disasters need the next wave of help. Disaster Relief Australia is built to serve and ready to answer the call.
More than 3000 people have signed up to offer their services since DRA launched in Australia in 2016. DRA are actively seeking motivated volunteers. They are looking for volunteers able to help communities devastated by disaster. They will become part of a nationwide tribe of committed members. DRA are rapidly building a disaster relief team in Perth (the 7th Australia wide). There is an opportunity to become a founding member of their newest DRT.

A full list of charities and organisations accepting donations can be found on the DEFS website.
Make a donation of goods
While we are deeply appreciative of all the offers and donations of goods to date, we remind our community that the most effective way of supporting affected communities is to give exactly what is needed by donating money to meet disaster-related expenses.
