Empowering Our Community During Emergencies


What do you do in Australia when faced with an emergency? For refugees and new immigrants in Australia, it can be challenging to find disaster recovery programs that cater to diverse cultural and linguistic needs. 

At Islamic Relief, we firmly believe in giving everyone the right to feel empowered and protected, especially during times of crisis. From what numbers to call and who to turn to, all communities should have the ability to rebuild and recover after any natural disaster, whether it be floods, droughts or bushfires.

That’s why, with the support of the NSW Government’s Community Resilience Innovation Program (CRIP), Islamic Relief is here to provide programs that provide communities with the tools they need to navigate through local emergencies end-to-end, from prevention to recovery. And we’re delighted to share with you a video of this journey so far.
