NRL's Round One for All Appeal
Every bit counts - Australia gives rise to resilient people. But there's a limit to what any person can handle on their own.
Across the country, many communities have been fighting drought and extreme weather for years. Many have lost their livelihoods, animal populations have been decimated; and for many the financial pressure is overwhelming. The effects will be felt for a long time.
The National Rugby League and its Clubs have partnered with The Salvation Army to continue to raise funds to provide hope throughout Australia.
You can play your part by giving what you can, and spreading the word to help.
How you can help
The Salvation Army has been active in regional communities for over 100 years. We have seen the effects of devastating drought in many of these communities. Since the middle of 2018, The Salvation Army has assisted over 10,000 drought-affected families and individuals distributing over $31 million of assistance to date.
Our network of chaplains, officers, staff and volunteers are located throughout Australia – in rural communities, walking alongside drought-affected families. Your donation to our drought appeal ensures that we are able to continue to walk alongside these communities for the long haul.
The Salvation Army has been at the forefront of the 2019-2020 bushfires which caused widespread loss and heartbreak throughout Australia. Since our first response in September 2019, we have successfully provided assistance in the form of hardship payments, hot meals, a helping hand or an attentive ear to those who impacted, as well as those serving on the frontlines.
The focus of our work has now shifted into the recovery phase – providing material and monetary aid to those who have lost everything. Your donation to our Bushfire disaster appeal ensures that the Salvos will be equipped to stand alongside Australians who are rebuilding their lives and communities.
At the beginning of 2019 North Queensland experienced a significant flood event that impacted vast areas of the region. Communities that were also under the grip of drought were suddenly faced with inland seas that wiped out hundreds of thousands of precious livestock.
The Salvation Army activated across the region in evacuation centres and then in a recovery response. Our network of rural chaplains, officers, staff and volunteers so far have distributed over $1 million of assistance to date to over 3,700 affected families and individuals. We know that the recovery from this event continues and will continue for the months and years ahead. Your donation to this appeal ensures that we are able to continue to walk alongside these communities for the long haul.
