Donate now to help those in desperate need in the UK and around the world.

We believe no-one should have to face a crisis alone. The Red Cross is there for those most in need, across the world and here in the UK.

When Typhoon Haiyan caused widespread devastation in the Philippines last November, we were on hand immediately to provide life-saving aid. We’re continuing to support people affected by the typhoon, working to restore livelihoods and build stronger houses. With your help, we can prepare for future disasters like this, equipping communities to deal with crises as soon as they happen.

In Syria, we’re helping people cope with the terrible effects of the ongoing conflict. Brave volunteers from the Syrian Arab Red Crescent are working in incredibly dangerous conditions to deliver vital supplies to stricken families, including food, water and medical aid.

Your donation could also allow us be there for someone in crisis right here in the UK – whether by helping someone who has just returned from hospital to get back on their feet, or supporting a family who have had to evacuate their home following a house fire.
