Why we need your help
Whether it's slow onset emergencies like chronic hunger, or immediate disasters such as when a typhoon, hurricane or earthquake strikes, we need to respond. Donate to our Disaster Fund to ensure we can reach people quickly in future crises.
Nobody can predict where the next disaster will strike. But one thing is certain. Whether there’s an earthquake in Nepal, floods in Somerset or conflict in Yemen, the Red Cross must be ready to act as soon as we're needed.
We rely on the generosity of people like you to help thousands of people when they need us most. By supporting our Disaster Fund, your money will be used to fund emergency response as soon as it is needed in the UK and anywhere in the world.
Your donation will help support the humanitarian response to disasters like Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas, to which the British Red Cross have recently pledged £150,000, from our Disaster Fund.
How the Red Cross is helping
Thanks to the Disaster Fund, we can make sure we’re ready to give people the help they need in an emergency – whether it’s essentials like food, shelter and health care, or other forms of support like reuniting families torn apart by crisis.
