Emergency Response

When disadvantaged communities are faced with a sudden crisis, disaster relief is delivered immediately in the form of nutrition supplies, shelter and medical support.

Immediate relief efforts often focus on the most vulnerable members of a community, being children. Creating child-friendly spaces and providing psychological support services help address the immediate concern for their safety while addressing the long-term need for trauma recovery.

Long after the initial crisis, Good Neighbours stays on in communities to help rebuild homes, livelihoods and initiate major reconstruction projects. Implementing disaster risk reduction programs is also key to ensuring communities have the resources and infrastructure, so they are better equipped should disaster strike again.

Our Australian office supports emergency relief both here and overseas. Whether responding with food hampers for displaced refugees arriving in Australia or meals for those affected by bushfires, relief efforts respond at both the domestic level and to international crises as they arise.

Refugees and Rural Communities

Whenever disaster strikes, you can be sure we’ll be there with aid. Long after the crisis is over, we’ll still be there helping to rebuild the lives of those affected and strengthen their resources for future response. We’ve been particularly focused on helping refugees and rural communities affected by natural disasters in developing countries.

Winter Warmer Hamper

Our Winter Warmer Hamper distribution saw over 700 hampers filled with essential food and hygiene items, to support 10 NSW multicultural communities. In particular, the hampers, sponsored by Multicultural NSW, aimed to improve the welfare of particular displaced communities, like recently arrived Burmese-Australians.

Bushfire Support

We partnered with OZ Harvest to provide food to families drastically affected by bushfires. $10,000 was raised in partnership with Good Neighbours Canada to provide meals for bushfire victims in the NSW North and South Coast, Southern Highlands and Wagga regions.

How to Give

Good Neighbours Australia supports community development initiatives locally and internationally. When you give a recurring donation to support community projects, your contribution will be allocated to a range of ongoing initiatives.

Your support will be directed to various infrastructure projects, dedicated training programs and provision of resources, all with the view to making communities more self reliant, resilient and sustainable for the long-term.
