Summary of activities

Our Vision is “Human dignity, peace, safety and wellbeing for all.” Our purpose: “We support and empower people and communities in times of vulnerability. Our purpose is to reduce suffering across Australia and internationally through mobilising the power of humanity.” The Australian Red Cross is made up of two operating divisions, Lifeblood and Humanitarian Services. Lifeblood plays an important role in the healthcare system by ensuring that patients in Australian hospitals receive life-saving blood products, delivering world-class research and provide expertise in diagnostic, transplantation and other clinical services, so helping reduce suffering. Lifeblood spent $703.5m in 2020, with the help of 506,985 volunteer blood donors, we collected and supplied 1.5m blood donations, with supplies remaining in inventory sufficiency bands for 365 days of the year. In 2019-20, Humanitarian Services spent $301.291m in delivery of humanitarian programs, emergency and disaster response. Most of our disaster and emergency work was carried out supporting people impacted by disasters locally such as those supported by our bushfire appeal and overseas such as the Indonesia Earthquake, Tsunami and the humanitarian challenges in Myanmar and Syria We spent $133.591m on our everyday work to address the disadvantaged, with $116.366m spent across Australia and $17.225m overseas. This includes Emergency Relief provided in Australia to people who are not Australian citizens or permanent residents that are impacted by COVID 19 pandemic and may require assistance such as paying utility bills or medical expenses. In addition we supported people in quarantine by providing meals, relief packages and phone calls during COVID 19 pandemic. Our program activities within humanitarian services, which contribute to achieving our purposes, are defined according to our priority areas – Disaster and Emergency services, Locational disadvantage, Social Inclusion, International Aid and Development, International Humanitarian Law, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander programs and Migrant Support Services
