Without income or access to safety nets like Centrelink or Medicare, this pandemic is exposing people seeking asylum even further to illness, destitution and the very worst of a system that has all but forgotten they exist.

Your donation to our EMERGENCY CASH APPEAL will fund the ASRC’s critical frontline humanitarian services, providing emergency food, shelter and healthcare to people seeking asylum during and after the COVID-19 crisis.

Donate today to help give the women, children and men who rely on the ASRC, a fighting chance at safety, security and survival in the long months ahead.

You are their lifeline.

There are a number of great ways you can support the ASRC from hosting your own fundraiser, organising donations in lieu of gifts for a celebration or taking part in one of our national events such as Feast for Freedom or Run 4 Refugees. Start fundraising today.
