The Red Cross has become a powerful symbol of hope to people in crisis all over the world. You make it possible for the Red Cross to help people affected by disasters.

We are the world’s largest independent humanitarian organisation, but we’re also built from local communities, around the UK and abroad. That means we are always right there whenever we’re needed.

By donating to the Red Cross you are a part of this worldwide movement to help people in need.

Thanks to your support, the Red Cross is always ready to respond to disasters, from earthquakes and typhoons to house fires and floods. But aside from these headline grabbing events, we also work hard to respond to everyday emergencies.

Will you make a donation today to ensure we can always respond wherever we’re needed?
