Donate to families in need this Christmas

This Christmas, you can make a family’s wishes come true

2021 has been a difficult year for everyone, with the second year of a devastating global pandemic, and numerous natural disasters around the world.

On Christmas day, many of us will come together with our families to share in a time of joy after a difficult year, however the challenges brought by COVID-19 and climate-related disasters for those living in poverty around the world, will only worsen.

As we open Christmas gifts on Christmas morning, families living in crisis situations will wake without even the basic necessities we take for granted.

Your generous donation this Christmas could mean lifesaving nutritious food for malnourished babies, clean drinking water for a family living in drought, or a roof over the heads of families recently affected by climate-related typhoons and flooding.

Please make a lifesaving donation today, and give the gift of hope.

CARE Australia is one of the best charities to give to at Christmas

Last year we helped 2.7 Million people, across 25 countries.

We put women and girls at the heart of our work to end worldwide poverty.

CARE has been saving lives around the world for 75 years.

CARE Australia is a leading international aid organisation that works around the globe to save lives and defeat poverty. We know we cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities.

We put women and girls at the heart of our work. Their access to equal opportunities represents a powerful and effective opportunity to end extreme poverty. When one woman escapes poverty, she will bring four others with her.

For those living in extreme poverty, your support brings education and training, healthcare and clean water, nutritious food, and new ways to earn an income. And in times of crisis, you help us deliver emergency relief.

Throughout our site, our name ‘CARE’ is used to reflect our lifesaving work across the world. Our network includes 14 federation members working in over 95 countries. Please refer to our Annual Reports for a more detailed list of the multiple programs CARE Australia directly manages.

CARE has been committed to helping the world’s most vulnerable people since the first CARE packages were sent to the survivors of World War II in 1945. We seek to end extreme poverty for all who experience it. We provide assistance to those in poverty regardless of race, religion or ethnicity.
