Luca Ridulfo, Partnerships Adviser, Australian Red Cross

Australian Red Cross would like to express our sincere gratitude towards La Trobe Financial for their generous support of our response to the devastating Australian bushfires. We are humbled by the goodwill and giving spirit that surrounds those affected by the fires. Thanks to all of the generous supporters like La Trobe Financial, Red Cross was able to support Australian communities with critical immediate and long-term support. Since September 2019 Red Cross has supported over 49,000 people, through 37 fires, across 5 states and territories and at 176 evacuation, relief and recovery centres. There will be many challenges still to face and Red Cross is committed to being there to support the communities on their long recovery journey.
